Revises PHSA requirements to allow states to obtain vaccines for adults from manufacturers at the applicable price negotiated by HHS. Creates a demonstration program to provide states with grants to states to enhance the delivery of recommended immunizations to children, adolescents, and adults.
Funds received under these grants are to be used to implement interventions recommended by the Task Force on Community Preventive Services (as established by HHS via the CDC), including, among others, providing immunization reminders or recalls for target populations. Stipulates an evaluation (within 3 years of the date of a state securing a grant under this provision) and a report to Congress (by March 23, 2014) on the demonstration program. Authorizes (but does not appropriate) such sums as may be necessary for each of FYs 2010-2014.
Also reauthorizes the PHSA section 371(j) Immunization Program. Mandates a GAO report by June 1, 2011, regarding Medicare beneficiaries access to vaccines (with recommendations for legislation and/or administrative action) and appropriates $1 million for FY 2010 to carry out these efforts.
