The U.S. CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) announced the agenda for a digital meeting scheduled for July 22, 2021, from 11 am to 4 pm ET. The agenda for this ACIP meeting focuses on two items, which are:

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) after Janssen COVID-19 vaccine,
  • Clinical considerations for additional doses in immunocompromised individuals

Registration is not required to watch the live, no-cost meeting webcast.

The ACIP provides advice and guidance to Dr. Rochelle Paula Walensky, the Director of the CDC, regarding the use of vaccines and related agents to control vaccine-preventable diseases in the civilian population of the USA. The CDC Director reviews recommendations made by the ACIP and, if adopted, are published as official CDC/HHS recommendations in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
