Fauci keynotes H1N1 forum

One of the most important lessons from the H1N1 influenza virus pandemic, said Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is the need to “connect the dots” between seasonal and pandemic influenza. Fauci, who keynoted the April 18 conference of the Emory-UGA Influenza Pathogenesis and Immunology Research Center, supports the CDC’s call for universal flu vaccination, which would include new platforms for vaccine manufacture. 

If “we can get into a rhythm of getting most people vaccinated each year…we will get into a situation where we don’t need to go from a seasonal approach to a crisis approach,” he said.
