Health policy and the availability of vaccinations

  Health policy is central to the availability and prevalence of vaccinations, which are a fundamental tool in disease prevention and public health protection. The approach to vaccination is central to health policy at the national, regional and global levels.

   Vaccination and health policy

  Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective tools in public health. They can prevent a broad spectrum of infectious diseases, reducing the burden of disease and protecting lives. Health policy shapes access to vaccination through regulation, financing, vaccination programs, education and communication.

   Funding as a key aspect of health policy

  Decisions on vaccine financing are a key aspect of health policy. Public funding for immunization is key to ensuring universal access to these important interventions, especially for the most vulnerable population groups.

   Regulations and standards

  Health policy also shapes vaccination regulations and standards. These can include vaccination requirements for certain groups (e.g., school-aged children), regulations on vaccine quality and safety, and procedures for vaccine distribution and storage.

   Education and communication

  Health policy plays a key role in shaping education and communication about vaccination. This can include information campaigns targeting the population, education for health professionals, and communication strategies in the event of uncertainty or resistance to vaccination.


  Health policy has a key impact on the availability and prevalence of vaccinations. By making funding decisions, setting regulations and standards, and conducting education and communication, health policy has the opportunity to significantly influence public health through vaccination. Understanding the role that health policy plays in the context of immunization is crucial to effective public health promotion.
