What You Need to Know

On several occasions in recent months we have reported on the extraordinary efforts being undertaken by federal health and disaster authorities to prepare for some form of pandemic-scale public health event (see this, this and this). The sheer scale of the preparations, the amounts of money being spent and the speed at which these preparations are taking place reveal significant concern on the part of authorities.

Keeping in mind that the H7N9 bird flu virus was only first identified in the early Spring of this year, a few of the federal government’s preparations we have covered since that time include:

A May 2013 announcement by the Dept. of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control of a 1 BILLION dollar cost plus Federal Solicitation for the purposes of emergency experimentation with H7N9 Flu vaccines and emergency experimental antiviral treatments.

The Solicitation specifically references “preparation for a possible large scale national H7N9 influenza vaccination program.”
