Vaccine programs extension bill
Rep. Waxman's (D-Calif.) HR 4238 passes the full House on July 23. The bill reauthorizes the Childhood Immunization Program, administered by the Centers for Disease Control, for five years, providing $185 mil. for fiscal 1991 and sums "as necessary" subsequently. The measure authorizes the appropriation of $5 mil. to maintain a six-month vaccine supply in 1991. The bill also reauthorizes at current levels the National Vaccine Program.
