Take Part in a CDC Online Dialogue on the H1N1 Flu Virus Vaccination Program

The CDC is seeking public input on its H1N1 flu virus vaccination program, and the organizers wanted to extend a special invitation to NCDDers (though to be clear, everyone is welcome to participate!).  The first dialogue begins this Wednesday and the second will begin a week from Monday (Aug 31).

Voice your Opinions:  Public Engagement Dialogue on the H1N1 Vaccination Program

The public is invited to participate in a two-day WebDialogue to give the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) input on its voluntary fall vaccination program against the 2009 H1N1 flu virus. Participants will discuss, deliberate, and offer input as the CDC helps state and local health organizations develop the vaccination program. Two identical dialogues are scheduled for August 26-27 and August 31-September 1. A new discussion topic will be introduced at 9am EDT each day. Participants can enter messages at any time during the day and night.

Participants are expected to review background materials about H1N1, thoughtfully discuss values and priorities, and provide input through a survey, poll, and evaluation.

If you are willing to participate fully, we invite you to make your voice heard. Please visit www.webdialogues.net/H1N1 and register for the dialogue that works best for you. Please share this announcement with others who might be interested in this important dialogue. Space is limited.

H1N1 Community Engagement Meetings: The Keystone Center is also holding meetings in ten communities on weekends during August. For more information visit: www.keystone.org/h1n1.

We welcome your participation in this dialogue.
