The COVID-19 pandemic is claiming lives across the globe and causing disruption to the delivery of primary health care services. A critical concern is that the interruption of immunization services poses a major risk for secondary outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases (VPD). This spotlight on vaccines highlights the importance of routine immunisation systems and calls to question the preparedness of health systems around the world.

In this online webinar, featuring speakers from Civil Society, Gavi and the WHO, we will identify lessons learnt from strengthening health systems and routine immunisation, reflect on adaptive approaches to maintain routine immunisation during the pandemic and identify the necessary commitments from country partners to achieve equitable access to vaccines against both known and novel pathogens.
