Effectiveness of Non-Vaccine Influenza Control Measures
March 2, 2021 - March 5, 2021
The National Academies will host a first committee meeting on Effectiveness of Non-Vaccine Influenza Control Measures on March 2-5, 2021 in virtual format.
The event supports the Health and Medicine Division’s Public Health Interventions and Countermeasures for Advancing Pandemic and Seasonal Influenza Preparedness and Response project.
The global response to COVID-19 has pushed the boundaries of preparedness for a respiratory virus. At the request of the Office of Global Affairs within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Academies has convened a committee to analyze how the response to COVID-19 and related events could inform efforts to strengthen future preparedness for and response to seasonal and pandemic influenza. This committee will review non-vaccine public health interventions and countermeasures that can be vital to mitigating the spread and impact of a respiratory virus both before and after vaccines are available.
These virtual events (March 2, 4, and 5) will feature speakers with expertise on therapeutics, non-vaccine public health interventions, as well as surveillance for influenza and COVID-19.
