CANDIA, Elena et al. First National Inter-Societies Consensus on Adult Immunization 2023. Rev. Inst. Med. Trop. [online]. 2023, vol.18, n.1, pp.96-119. ISSN 1996-3696.

Vaccines prevent millions of deaths each year, and their efficacy and safety have been widely established. In economic terms, vaccination is one of the most cost-effective health interventions, generating significant savings and long-term economic growth. Adult vaccination has been shown to decrease morbidity and mortality associated with preventable Infectious diseases, reducing complications and hospitalizations, including admissions to intensive care units. We have prepared this consensus document in order to design a pragmatic, accessible and standardized vaccination scheme for adults, according to risk category and age, based on the available evidence of available vaccines and new vaccines, having used the third consensus of the Paraguayan Infectious Diseases Society of 2019 as a basis for the final recommendations.

Keywords : Vaccines; Immunization; Immunization Programs; Risk Factors.
