Vaccination: short- to long-term benefits from investment
Vaccination programs such as those for Rotavirus have shown a significant short-term return on investment.
In an economic evaluation of vaccination against rotavirus conducted in Italy, it was shown that as early as the second year after rotavirus vaccine introduction, the vaccine cost would be more than offset by savings from prevention of disease cases and hospitalizations.
