Abstract

Key Points

• Vaccination is one of the population health interventions that have had the greatest impact on global health.

• Millions of deaths and serious illnesses have been avoided every year through the implementation of routine population-based vaccination programmes and targeting improved vaccination coverage.

• If overall immunisation levels are high enough, epidemics can be prevented – thus providing social and individual protection.
