[From Introduction]: The first edition of Recent Advances in Immunization was published by the Pan American Health Organization in 1983. Today, twenty-three years later, the editors are pleased to be able to provide this second edition. We believe this reissue comes at a critical time in the evolution of national immunization programs. Immunization is at a crossroads. The future offers new opportunities to tackle important public health priorities with new technologies. However, new vaccines are much more expensive than the traditional vaccines used in childhood immunization programs. Evidence-based, informed decisions will be critical for sustaining the success of immunization.
