THE TURNING POINT: Prepare Now to Respond Better, Harnessing the Power of Influenza and COVID-19 Vaccination in Low- and Middle-Income Countries to Bolster Adult Vaccination and Respond to the Next Pandemic

In early 2021, Ready2Respond conducted an extensive mapping of the current landscape of organizations and agencies working on global seasonal and/or pandemic vaccine preparedness. Performed during the COVID-19 vaccination deployment efforts, this research identifies key areas which may have contributed to low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) not prioritizing seasonal influenza vaccination, or utilizing influenza vaccination programming as a blueprint for pandemic vaccine deployment preparedness despite a sustained WHO recommendation. This report provides recommendations for shoring up readiness to future respiratory pandemics, while elevating influenza preparedness as a public health priority in LMICs.
