Now more than ever, vaccines are the central focus of public health efforts to control a pandemic while maintaining routine immunization efforts. Vaccine-preventable disease continue to cause significant morbidity, mortality and economic burden around the world. Strategies for rolling out vaccination programs, improving routine immunization rates, and increasing vaccine acceptance are in constant need of research and optimization during both pandemic and non-pandemic times.
We are pleased to invite you to submit an article to this Special Issue on Vaccination and Public Health. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: (1) vaccination strategies and herd immunity; (2) vaccination of special populations including those with impaired immunity, pregnant women, breastfeeding women, and children; (3) vaccine safety assessment; (4) vaccines cost effectiveness and impact studies; (5) assessment and interventions to promote vaccine acceptance; (6) strategies to improve vaccine access and equality; and (7) novel vaccine platforms. The Special Issue will include studies on both COVID-19, routine vaccinations and experimental vaccines and vaccine preventable diseases. Original research articles and reviews are welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
