CDC: Economic Studies of Immunization Policies and Practices

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-IP-15-001

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to obtain economic information about vaccines and immunization policies, programs, and practices using economic and decision analyses and other appropriate methods. The results of these economic studies will be used to help inform policy and the development of effective interventions. Three studies will be conducted, including an analysis of the financial, economic, and epidemiologic relationships between vaccine-preventable infectious diseases and chronic diseases in adult populations, and the opportunity costs for immunization of failure to prevent chronic diseases. Study 1 may include, but need not be limited to influenza and pneumococcal diseases and diabetes. Study 2 will focus on an estimation of the costs of norovirus disease. Study three will involve an analysis of issues related to provider reimbursement for adult vaccination services.

Application Deadline: March 3, 2015

FOIA Requests

CWRU researchers who receive requests for information that invoke the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) should contact the Office of General Counsel. This should be done immediately so the extremely short deadlines under FOIA can be met. General Counsel can work with the faculty member to take steps to protect proprietary or confidential information from grants and protocols prior to the release of the requested information. Individual researchers should not release information without first consulting with the CWRU Office of General Counsel.
