The adult and child immunization subcommittees hold joint quarterly conference calls to discuss issues surrounding immunization and vaccine-preventable diseases. Subcommittee calls include updates from CSTE’s liaisons to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC). Other discussions have included measles case classifications, case investigation protocols, vaccine barcoding projects, and the development of CSTE position statements. A measles workgroup was formed to discuss issues specific to measles and measles outbreaks. This workgroup’s calls have included presentations about outbreaks in Canada, Western Europe, and New Zealand, discussions of laboratory issues for measles, and a study of secondary measles cases.
