dc.description.abstractBelgium has a limited budget available for vaccination, divided among the Flemish and Walloon communities. Previously conducted research showed regional difference among the efficiency of both community’s immunization programs. The objective of this study is to analyze the overall efficiency of the Belgian immunization program, compare it to vaccination schedules of other EU countries and identify and quantify costs and health gains which can be saved through optimizing the current vaccination schedule. Depending on the vaccine, three possible optimization strategies were assessed: 1) increasing vaccination rates 2) including new vaccines into the national vaccination schedule or 3) switching vaccines. To do so, an in depth-analysis was conducted, mapping out all incurred costs for both non-vaccination and different vaccination strategies.
