Pneumonia and diarrhea are leading killers of children under the age of five, claiming the lives of more young children globally than any other infectious disease. The impacts of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic aggravate these heath risks. International Vaccine Access Center's (IVAC) annual Pneumonia & Diarrhea Progress Report evaluates the progress across 10 high-impact indicators outlined in the Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Pneumonia and Diarrhea (GAPPD) in the 15 countries with the greatest burden of under-five pneumonia and diarrhea deaths.

The availability of a COVID-19 vaccine has been heralded as key to controlling the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 vaccination programme success will rely on public willingness to be vaccinated. This study uses a multi-methods approach - involving an online cross-sectional survey and semi-structured interviews - to investigate parents’ and guardians’ views on the acceptability of a future COVID-19 vaccine.

Inequity in routine childhood vaccination coverage is well researched. Pandemics disrupt infrastructure and divert health resources from preventive care, including vaccination programmes, leading to increased vaccine preventable morbidity and mortality. COVID-19 control measures have resulted in coverage reductions. We conducted a rapid review of the impact of pandemics on existing inequities in routine vaccination coverage. PICO search framework: Population: children 0–18 years; Intervention/exposure: pandemic/epidemic; Comparison: inequality; Outcome: routine vaccination coverage. The review demonstrates a gap in the literature as none of the 29 papers selected for full-paper review from 1973 abstracts identified from searches met the inclusion criteria.

The zeal to develop and
implement a vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
infection has been exceptional. Operation Warp Speed, the Trump
administration's proposal, seeks to produce hundreds of millions of
doses of a vaccine by January 2021. Recent polls show as many as 70% of
adults in the United States plan to get vaccinated against COVID-19 once
a vaccine is available.
And thousands of adults have registered to participate as volunteers in
human challenge trills to speed up the development of a new vaccine. We anticipate that this fervor will eventually lead to
discussions about making a COVID-19 vaccine mandatory. An obvious group
to target for mandatory vaccination is children. Not only do we already
mandate several vaccines for them to attend school, but strategies to
reopen schools or keep them open may be predicated on it.
