As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, vaccinating priority populations against the virus is a top priority for health systems worldwide. This global focus on vaccines provides an opportunity to elevate the importance of routine immunization and consider new ways to reach under-vaccinated populations with life-saving vaccines.

However, in addition to these opportunities, the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines can create potential risks, including diverting health systems’ attention and resources away from routine immunization and possible spillover effects from concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety.

To discuss these early experiences and strategies to leverage the focus on COVID-19 to strengthen routine immunization, USAID and MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity are hosted a webinar on Tuesday, April 27. The webinar, “Maintaining Focus on Routine Immunization through COVID-19 Vaccination,” included speakers from USAID’s Immunization team, USAID Mozambique, Gavi, and MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity.
