Over the past decades, the number of vaccinations recommended for infants has increased significantly, in an effort pursuing wider protection against severe infectious diseases. In their first year, infants would typically get more than 50 injections. The use of combination vaccines provides one solution to the problem of high injection burden but may be undervalued due to the underestimation of vaccine-preventable diseases’ seriousness and vaccination benefits. Our objective is to investigate the societal value of pediatric combination vaccines.
