Introduction:

The 2009 influenza A H1N1 pandemic raised important, practical questions about how to vaccinate large numbers of people quickly, especially during an emergency, and how to reach vulnerable populations such as children. To accomplish both of these objectives, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) conducted one of the nation’s largest efforts to deliver influenza A (H1N1) 2009 monovalent vaccine. This effort included an elementary school---located vaccination campaign for children enrolled at that school who were aged 4 years and older and a community-based, mass-vaccination, points-of-dispensing campaign that was initially targeted to people aged 4 to 24 years and pregnant women, then expanded to other priority groups, and finally opened up to anyone in the general population aged 4 years and older for the last weekend. In addition, vaccination was available through private providers, hospitals, community health centers, DOHMH clinics, and pharmacies.
