Vaccine Introduction Guidelines: Adding a Vaccine to a National Immunization Programme: Decision and Implementation

This guide aims to help country-level decision-makers decide whether to add a new vaccine to the national immunization program, and national immunization program managers to implement the operational steps to add the vaccine. It can also be used as a supporting tool to advocate political decision-makers to introduce a vaccine. The report provides general guidance, as well as an annex of vaccine-specific information.
