National routine adult immunisation programmes among World Health Organization Member States: an assessment of health systems to deploy COVID-19 vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines are being deployed in many countries that do not have routine adult immunisation infrastructure. The global response to the COVID-19 pandemic should address disparities in adult immunisation systems, in order to maximise the impact and equity of COVID-19 vaccine deployment. Eurosurveillance
