star this property answer text <p>The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) provides independent expert advice on the United Kingdom’s immunisation programme. As an independent committee, it is well placed to ensure the latest and most appropriate evidence has been considered on potential changes to scheduling within the vaccine programme. It bases its advice on review of a wide range of scientific and other evidence, including from the published literature, commissioned studies such as independent analyses of vaccine effectiveness and cost effectiveness.</p><p>The JCVI advised that a two-dose schedule for the infant pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) Prevenar13 is appropriate for the UK. Its advice takes into account the public health aspects of any potential change to the vaccination schedule, such as the potential impact on cases of infectious disease. The JCVI consulted relevant stakeholders on its proposed advice, between January and April 2018, to ensure that its advice reflects all the evidence.</p><p>The JCVI’s advice on the infant pneumococcal programme was given full consideration, including the potential public health implications, before a decision was made to implement it. The UK frequently adopts innovative immunisation schedules and we regularly change the vaccine schedule following the advice of our independent expert committee, as we are doing in this case.</p><p>The decision is based on the excellent effectiveness of the vaccine and years of high uptake, which has helped to provide protection to the rest of the population and has successfully controlled many types of pneumococcal disease in this country. The evidence shows that two doses will sustain the excellent results we have already seen. We are confident that the world-class disease surveillance system we have in this country means our expert committee can closely monitor the impact of this change. This is set out in the JCVI’s minutes which are attached.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Advance Market Commitment (AMC) for Pneumococcal Vaccines is a dynamic financing instrument of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Its objective is to reduce deaths from severe pneumonia by reducing the cost of the pneumococcal vaccine. The AMC does this by incentivising vaccine manufacturers and generating greater competition by encouraging additional manufacturers to the market. So far, 114 million children have been vaccinated with AMC-supported pneumococcal vaccines, saving 762,000 lives.</p><p> </p><p>DFID has committed $485 million to AMC from 2010 until 2020. The AMC has consistently delivered and performs very strongly. It scored an A+ in its last Annual Review. The current end date is scheduled for December 2020. DFID are currently reviewing vaccine demand projections and in discussions with other stakeholders whether an extension is required in order to attract new manufacturers and generate wider benefits. This review is in line with our approach to maximise effectiveness and ensure good value for money.</p>
