Vaccine development is at the forefront of global efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemic, with a rapidly growing pipeline of candidates that will expand the existing vaccine landscape.

The evolution of the US influenza vaccine market offers insights into the potential barriers and opportunities for successful rollouts of novel COVID-19 vaccines.

On April 15, President Trump announced his intention to halt funding to the World Health Organization (WHO), pending an investigation into WHO’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. WHO first declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on January 30 and a global pandemic on March 11. A reduction in funding from the US could limit WHO’s COVID-19 response activities as well as its regular vaccine programming, including product prequalification, global surveillance, and ongoing efforts to strengthen health systems.

Although influenza disease burden is high, vaccine uptake remains low.

Globally, the need to flatten the epidemic curve of COVID-19 cases has become the top public health priority to save lives and minimize the burden on the health care system. In the absence of treatments and prophylactics for the novel coronavirus, social distancing and quarantine strategies continue to be implemented in the US.

Opportunities exist to accelerate potential vaccine development.

Nearly 80,000 people died during the 2017–2018 influenza season. Only 37% of adults were vaccinated. Several novel emerging products could make vaccination more accessible and effective, potentially reshaping the market and lowering influenza disease burden.
