HOW YOU CAN USE THIS MATERIAL:
Governments, partners, and other stakeholders should use this tool to estimate the introductory and deployment costs of COVID-19 vaccine procurement and service delivery in their country, then use the estimates to prepare budgets and mobilize resources.
As countries are planning the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines for 2021, they can use this tool to estimate the incremental costs for resource mobilization purposes and to prepare budgets for vaccination beyond 2021.
- The tool aligns with the COVID-19 vaccine introduction readiness assessment tool and the Guidance on developing a national deployment and vaccination plan, and WHO SAGE values framework for the allocation and prioritization of COVID-19 vaccination.
- To support a rapid, yet comprehensive, estimation of the incremental costs, the tool is pre-populated as much as possible – using available data from global databases.
- The tool’s output includes estimates, which can be directly inserted into COVID-19 vaccine introduction readiness assessment tool.
