JSI was engaged by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to hire, train, and deploy a field staff to assist in the roll-out of novel human virus H1N1 (swine flu) influenza vaccine within the Commonwealth. The research associates (RAs), under the guidance of JSI consultants, answered health provider questions regarding registration as a providing site, allocation of vaccine and reporting of vaccine use. Additionally, the staff tracked deployment and depletion of vaccine stocks, and analyzed data looking for gaps in availability.
