ABSTRACT

CBO Paper: U.S. Policy Regarding Pandemic-Influenza Vaccines   [open pdf - 636KB]

In 2005, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published a plan that includes a series of measures to be taken in the case of an influenza pandemic. This paper focuses on the federal government's role in the vaccine market that is outlined in the HHS plan. The report provides information on the current state of readiness, the additional expenditures likely to be necessary to achieve HHS's vaccine-related goals, the expenditures that are likely necessary to maintain preparedness, and the approaches of other countries as they too face the prospect of an influenza pandemic.
