Cost-effectiveness of a national enterovirus 71 vaccination program in China
Within the price range of current routine vaccines paid by the government, a national EV71 vaccination program would be cost-saving or highly cost-effective to prevent EV71 related morbidity, mortality, and use of health service among children younger than five years in China. Policy makers should consider including EV71 vaccination as part of China’s routine childhood immunization schedule.
