The priority categorization of vaccines is established by the WHO in consultation with UNICEF and the Revolving Fund of the Pan American Health Organization. Both of these UN procurement agencies use the prequalification of vaccines service. Four criteria are used to determine the priority category for each vaccine:
demand in UN-supplied markets, including planned new vaccine introductions
suitability for WHO programmatic needs, in compliance with Inaternational Health Regulations, eradication, elimination or control initiatives and considerations of individualimmunization programmes
recommendations of WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on immunization
supply security, indicated by the number, diversity and production capacity of suppliers
