Experiences in New Vaccine Introduction


In support of USAID’s efforts to help increase the equitable coverage of vaccines, strengthen routine immunization (RI) systems, and leverage the US Government’s large global contribution to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, the Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP, 2013–2019) has provided technical assistance to support countries in planning for, preparing for, and introducing new vaccines and in following up post-introduction.

This document outlines MCSP's role in introducing new vaccines in several countries and synthesizes recommendations and lessons learned. The publication highlights the steps required to introduce new vaccines in a country, and highlights implementation successes and challenges in more than 10 countries.

Since 2014, MCSP has supported 25 new vaccine introductions (NVIs) in 11 Gavi-eligible countries. JSI/Maternal and Child Survival Project. 2019.
