A Tool to Estimate the Potential Impacts for Stockpiling Vaccines for Vaccine-Preventable Diseases of Children

The VacStockpile has been designed to help planners and policy makers evaluate the potential health and cost impacts of stockpile decisions for each type of pediatric vaccine for an array of scenarios regarding possible vaccine shortages. The consequences of a vaccine shortage evaluated include potential doses of vaccine shortage, replenishment costs to replace stockpile doses that are used for shortages or discarded because of expiry of shelf life, and a number of potential health consequences (e.g., number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths) that may occur under various vaccine shortage scenarios. Although VacStockpile has been designed for use in the United States, it can be applied to other situations or locations where vaccine stockpiles are being maintained or considered.
