Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Despite the efforts to implement vaccination programs, new challenges continually arise to defeat the objectives of controlling and eliminating communicable diseases: e.g. new diseases with no vaccine available, public skepticism about vaccination, poor immunization coverage, etc. In this context, pregnant women and children usually represent risk groups with worse outcomes than the average population. In addition, for ethical reasons, they are usually left out of clinical trials for new vaccines, as it has been the case of COVID-19.

The aim of this issue is to publish research about vaccination in pregnancy and childhood, using a broad perspective. From antigen discovery and preclinical studies to immunoepidemiological analyses of current vaccination programs, this issue intends to cover all communicable diseases with high morbility and/or mortality for mothers-to-be, newborns, infants and children.
