School-Based Delivery of Vaccines to 5- to 19- Year Olds

This book chapter, published in Disease Control and Priorities (third edition), outlines the benefits of implementing school-based delivery of vaccines in low- and middle-income countries, using the experiences of tetanus and human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines as examples. The chapter delves into school-based vaccine delivery strategies and explores the costs and cost-effectiveness of implementation—ultimately arguing that school-based immunization programs are an opportunity to strengthen school health programs and improve overall community health.
