Special Issue Information
While overall in the world, immunization rates stagnated prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, and declined in 2020 and 2021, this is neither uniformly the case for all types of vaccines, nor for all population sub-groups for any individual vaccine. Furthermore, the breadth of protection varies, with many countries lagging behind in the introduction of new and under-utilized vaccines, such as those against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and seasonal influenza, to name a few. In this Special Issue, we will explore the latest evidence on various types of immunization across the life course at global, regional, national and subnational levels. We encourage submissions that explore various dimensions of inequality—such as economic status, subnational geographic regions, sex, maternal education—and other categories (like migrant status or occupation), or that shed greater analytical or methodological light on priority population subgroups, namely, populations facing gender barriers, rural residents, the urban poor, and populations living in conflict areas. We encourage submissions that compare various country contexts or that assess trends over time, and those that draw from geographies where the evidence has been limited to date, such as Low and Middle-Income Country contexts. Communications that describe the impacts of inequality monitoring of immunization are also welcome.
