As a policy administrator with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your agency received an influx of H1N1 flu vaccine that the agency decided to give free of charge to the public based on concerns of an impending outbreak of swine flu. However, your office realized that the policy on giving vaccinations to the public in large quantities is unclear as numerous challenges can arise such as overcrowding, which could lead to a problem for physicians, clinicians, and other healthcare professionals. Nevertheless, your office decided to still distribute the vaccine to the public and request your support in drafting an interim policy to deal with this large vaccination outreach.
Create a brochure that notifies the public of the upcoming vaccine outreach at a place and time of your choice. Your brochure should include the following:
- Define the potential challenges that may arise for a large outreach vaccine program.
- Identify the benefits of giving the vaccine to residents.
- Explain the dangers of not receiving the vaccine.
- Interpret existing H1N1 policies and adopt necessary provisions into your interim policy and give details.
Length: 3 pages, not including title and reference pages.
References: Include a minimum of 5 scholarly resources.
Your brochure should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
