Special Issue: The Economic Value of Vaccination

On 12 August 2015, Journal of Market Access and Health Policy published a special issue titled The Economic Value of Vaccination: Why Prevention is Wealth. The series of articles was developed using independent research by 11 public health and economic experts in collaboration with Sanofi Pasteur MD. Among the key findings:

  • Vaccination plays a major role in the sustainability of healthcare systems, particularly in the context of increasing pressure on healthcare budgets.


  • Beyond its impact on healthcare resources, vaccination also contributes to productivity and economic growth.


  • Elderly vaccination programs contribute to a more active and healthier aging population in a context of unprecedented demographic challenge in Europe.
