Disclosures: To ensure the integrity of the ACIP, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has taken steps to ensure that there is technical adherence to ethics statutes and regulations regarding financial conflicts of interest. Concerns regarding the potential for the appearance of a conflict are addressed, or avoided altogether, through preappointment and postappointment considerations. Individuals with particular vaccine-related interests will not be considered for appointment to the committee. Potential nominees are screened for conflicts of interest and, if any are found, are asked to divest or forgo certain vaccine-related activities. In addition, at the beginning of each ACIP meeting, each member is asked to declare his or her conflicts. Members with conflicts are not permitted to vote if the conflict involves the vaccine or biologic being voted on. Details can be found at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/acip/committee/structure-role.html. Dr. Kim has nothing to disclose. Dr. Hunter reports travel expenses to ACIP meetings paid by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; grants from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services for speaking to clinicians in Milwaukee about adult vaccinations; and board membership in Immunize Milwaukee!, an ad hoc, nonincorporated, unfunded community coalition seeking to increase vaccination rates in metro Milwaukee.
