Within HHS, CDC makes recommendations on vaccination, tracks the disease, and disseminates public health messages on influenza. This testimony discusses (1) lessons learned from federal responses to prior influenza outbreaks and (2) federal investments to strengthen the U.S. vaccine supply and production capacity.
