    Considerations for Integrating COVID-19 Vaccination into Immunization Programmes and Primary Health Care for 2022 and beyond

    This document lays out key programmatic considerations essential for moving from mass campaigns for COVID-19 vaccination to integrating COVID-19 vaccination into immunization programmes, PHC and other relevant health services for 2022 and beyond.

    The ultimate aim is to fully explore potential areas for integrating different components of immunization programmes, PHC and health systems. Given the evolving epidemiological nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a living document and will be updated to reflect the changing context, including as policies for COVID-19 vaccinations over the longer term are formulated. Finally, the document is not intended to outline a prescriptive approach but rather to present considerations and options for countries to consider and apply based on their needs and the country context.
