Overview

This handbook has been developed for countries introducing Synflorix™ (PCV10) Pneumococcal Vaccine, the two dose, preservative-free presentation.

This handbook is most useful for staff working at district and health facility levels. Some adaptations will need to be made at national level (by the National EPI Manager, in-country partners, and others) before its distribution, to ensure that certain aspects, such as waste disposal or AEFI monitoring, are aligned with national policies.
