These procedures should be followed for economic analyses to be presented to an ACIP Work Group or to the ACIP, effective as of the ACIP meeting of October 23-24, 2019.

Cost-effectiveness and other types of economic analyses are frequently presented during meetings of ACIP Work Groups (WGs) and the ACIP. The Guidance for Health Economics Studies Presented to the ACIP, 2019 Update (Guidance) was developed to ensure that economic data presented to the WGs and to the ACIP are uniform in presentation, understandable, and of the highest quality. The Guidance mandates a technical review of any economic study that is being considered for presentation. Economic study materials that are being submitted for review must include two items:

  1. a document or report that describes the methods and results of the study, and
  2. a slide set and/or other presentation materials.
