The COVID-19 pandemic has led to major backsliding for childhood vaccinations with many of the world’s most vulnerable populations left not fully protected or not receiving any life-saving immunizations at all. Use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCV) is one of the most effective interventions for preventing pneumonia deaths among children under five and countries have struggled to achieve universal coverage and reach at-risk communities even before the onset of a global pandemic. For this year’s World Pneumonia Day, IVAC has gathered a diverse panel of experts to discuss the implications of observed declines in PCV coverage and to explore promising approaches or strategies to expand PCV delivery from the lenses of epidemiology, health economics, and implementation science. We hope you will join us for this interdisciplinary panel coming together to share valuable insights about the path forward to restore, maintain and expand PCV coverage.
