Vaccinology in Latin America: A Resource for Immunization Managers

This book seeks to provide immunization managers, specifically in Latin America, with the basics of vaccinology that will help them better manage their programs, with the ultimate aim of reaching every child and every family with available vaccines. It provides tools to ensure the technical and operational success of immunization programs. The book is broken down into five modules―extisting vaccines and vaccines in development; decision-making on new vaccines; implementation and expansion of immunization programs; vaccine advocacy and social communication; and looking ahead.
