Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I was a lead on a summary report on 2013-2014 mass vaccination exercises that identified best practices and lessons learned, and was disseminated with local and tribal health departments throughout Minnesota. I am involved in ongoing data analysis of these mass vaccination exercises, and jointly work with the emergency preparedness and immunization sections in the Minnesota Department of Health in coordinating the ordering of vaccines for exercises in 2015-2016.
