Most vaccines have traditionally been administered to infants and young children, but maternal vaccination has received increasing attention as a means of protecting both mother and child. This talk looks at factors driving the value of maternal vaccination, such as protection to the mother, duration of protection for the infant and seasonality. Examples will be drawn from cost-effectiveness analyses used to inform policy in the United Kingdom as well as in low and middle-income countries, for both existing vaccines like seasonal influenza vaccines as well as pipeline vaccines like RSV and GBS vaccines.
