Rekha Joins HHS Vaccine Confidence Subcommittee
Rekha Lakshmanan joins an advisory subcommittee of the Department of Health and Human Services to recommend ways to improve vaccine confidence in immunizations.
"The National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) recommends ways to achieve optimal prevention of human infectious diseases through vaccine development, and provides direction to prevent adverse reactions to vaccines." NVAC is a committee under the US Department of Health and Human Services.
In 2019, NVAC formed a Vaccine Confidence Subcommittee to "provide a report in September 2020 that summarizes the evidence and research in vaccine confidence and provides recommendations on strategies to improve vaccine confidence across the lifespan."
