Building Demand
  • To raise rates significantly, immunization must
    be integral part of adult healthcare
  • Provide sufficient physician incentive to
    immunize
  • Adequate reimbursement required
  • Consider pay-for-performance bonuses within
    reimbursement systems
  • Focus on provider education
  • Offer ways for clinical staff to easily check
    patients immunization status and encourage
    influenza vaccination
  • Reach out to physician groups that may impact
    immunization (e.g., range of specialists)

5
Ensuring Supply
  • Increased demand will help ensure stable supply
  • Influenza demand has never exceeded 83 million
    doses
  • Increase in capacity will be required to
    manufacture adequate supplies in the long term
  • Each year manufacturers must be more confident
    that vaccine doses will be distributed

6
Expanding Access
  • Broadly communicate where and when people can get
    vaccinated
  • Expand and support non-traditional sites for
    vaccination
  • Extend hours of operation, including weekend
    clinics for vaccines only, at medical facilities
  • Provide walk-in vaccinations at medical
    facilities
  • Employ mobile vans for vaccination in rural and
    other areas with limited access to healthcare
    providers

7
Private Sector Role
  • Employers should be encouraged to subsidize cost
    for employees, in conjunction with on-site
    vaccination
  • Private insurance reimbursement rates should be
    increased for immunization
  • Support access improvements

8
Governments Role
  • Expand federal funding for education campaigns on
    value of influenza immunization and
    recommendations
  • Maintain Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement
    rates
  • Support access improvements

9
Universal Influenza Vaccination Manufacturers
Perspective
  • Industry supports universal influenza vaccination
  • Increasing demand is essential
  • Basic Economics Supply will follow increased
    demand
  • Industry, health care providers, private payers,
    and government must contribute and partner
    effectively
