ESTABLISHING EXPANDING COVERAGE AGAINST PNEUMOCOCCAL INFECTIONS AS A PRIORITY
New for 2021! EIP are pleased to confirm that a new vaccine-specific Working Group will be added to the line-up in 2021. The Pneumococcal Working Group has been convened to review and advise whether Pneumococcal Vaccinations should be expanded to cover all ages and not only children and high-risk groups as part of a strategy to eliminate other threats of infectious diseases. Such a move would allow stretched health systems dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, and its aftermath, to redirect and relocate resources. But is wide-scale Pneumococcal vaccinations the right move at this current time?
