Conseil d'Evaluation des Technologies de la Sante du Quebec
Record ID 31999009736
This study aims to define the possible immunization strategies for Streptococcus pneumoniae in Quebec, and to analyse their costs and benefits for specific target groups.
Authors' recommendations: Despite differences according to target groups, the results of the study are in support of instituting a pneumococcal immunization program. Furthermore, the group-purchase scenario is more advantageous than the individual purchase scenario because of the savings achieved through the bulk purchase of vaccine and the level of vaccine coverage obtained.
