Innovations in vaccine delivery: increasing access, coverage, and equity and lessons learnt from measles and rubella elimination

Publication Date Feb 24, 2022


Disease eradication and elimination programs drive innovations based on progress toward measurable objectives, evaluations of new strategies and methods, programmatic experiences, and lessons learned from the field. Following progress toward global measles elimination, reducing measles mortality, and increasing introductions ofmeasles and rubella vaccines to national programs, the measles and rubella immunization program has faced setbacks in recent years. Currently available vaccine delivery methods have complicated logistics and drawbacks that create barriers to vaccination; innovations for easier, more efficient, and safer vaccine delivery are needed. Progress can be accelerated by new technologies like microarray patches (MAPs) that are now widely recognized as a potential new tool for enhancing global immunizations efforts. Clinical trials of measles-rubella vaccine MAPs have begun, and several other vaccine MAPs are in the pre-clinical development pathway. MAPs could significantly contribute to Immunization Agenda 2030 priorities, including reaching zero-dose children; increasing vaccine access, demand, coverage, and equity; and achieving measles and rubella elimination. With strong partnerships between public health agencies and biotechnology companies, translational novel vaccine delivery systems can be developed to help solve public health problems and achieve global health priorities.
