The Right Shot: Extending the Reach of Affordable and Adapted Vaccines

Lack of information on both the price and the different product characteristics of vaccines limits countries’ ability to operate affordable and effective immunization programs. This report aims to remedy some of the existing knowledge gaps by raising awareness on existing price differentials, exploring what factors drive fluctuations in vaccine prices, and discussing where development of better adapted vaccines could reduce barriers to immunization and increase coverage levels of traditional and newer vaccines. It is intended to serve as a resource for immunization stakeholders, such as donors, implementing partners, and developing countries.
