STATEMENT OF NEED
Vaccines represent one of the most important health interventions developed to date, possessing the ability to vastly alter the trajectory of human health. Vaccine coverage has expanded significantly around the globe, saving millions of lives and improving outcomes beyond health to positively influence individual and societal stability and prosperity. However, despite this tremendous progress, additional steps are needed to reach the millions of people who remain unvaccinated and under-vaccinated. Overcoming barriers to broad immunization requires a thorough understanding of modern vaccine science, optimal clinical practice, the impact of vaccine hesitancy and other causes of suboptimal vaccine coverage.
This activity is designed to assist learners in reviewing the fundamental aspects of vaccine science including manufacturing and quality assurance practices, clinical immunization practices and barriers to achieving optimal vaccine coverage.
