Session Description

One hundred years ago, infectious diseases were the main cause of death in US children. Today, there is a vast range of vaccines available to protect against 26 infectious diseases – and there are new vaccines on the horizon with the potential to prevent even more. Vaccination is also one of the most cost-effective health-care investments available. In the United States, cost-benefit analysis indicates that every dollar invested in a vaccine dose saves US$2 to US$27 in health-care expenses. In spite of its undisputed success of immunization efforts, 1.5 million deaths still occur each year from vaccine-preventable diseases.  We will discuss the impact of vaccines on child health with a focus on influenza vaccine this season, and also discuss RSV in young infants and recent COVID manifestations among pediatric patients. 

Education Goals

  • To understand the role of vaccines in improving U.S. child health in the last decade
  • To define the pediatric epidemiology of the last influenza season
  • To assess the impact of RSV on infants who are not receiving palivizumab
  • To briefly review the impact of COVID-19 on the US pediatric population
