Request to Make an Oral Public Comment
The October 23-24, 2019 ACIP meeting will include one session for oral public comment for members of the public, totaling 60-minutes. The oral public comment session will occur on October 23, before any of the day’s scheduled votes.
If the number of people requesting to speak is greater than can be reasonably accommodated during the time scheduled for oral public comment, CDC may conduct a lottery to determine the speakers. CDC staff will notify individuals regarding their request to speak via email by October 16, 2019.
To accommodate the significant interest in participation in the oral public comment session of ACIP meetings, each speaker will be limited to 3 minutes, and each speaker may only speak once per meeting. Interested persons who are unable to make an oral public comment during this meeting are invited to submit a written comment.All persons requesting to make an oral comment must also register to attend the ACIP meeting.
