Epidemiologicaldiscussions on guiding policy should also consider the burden of a particular disease compared to otherhealth problems, as well as the extent to which the disease can be controlled by vaccination and thepossibility of the development of more serious infection due to strain replacement, as happened withHaemophilus influenzae type b (HiB) infection in the West, or age-shifting due to subimmunisation,as inthe case of rubella One of the main stumbling blocks for an evidence-based vaccine policy in India is the lack of reliableepidemiological data. There are insufficient data on the actual prevalence and incidence of disease,pathogen strain/serotype variations, and immunity with and without vaccination among populations of different geographical regions/age groups The current level of disease surveillance inIndia is insufficient to support unequivocal scientificdecisions based on established principles of public health . These limitations severely affect the task of theNTAGI, on whichthe Union Government currently relies for all its vaccination policy decisions The introduction of more expensive vaccines sold by private manufactures in the public health systemrequires a transparent evaluation of the need for the vaccine and the health of the children in thecountry, and should not focus solely on the viability of the vaccine industry . The mere availability of a safe and efficacious /affordable vaccine cannot be a good enough justificationfor its universal use. Vaccines are not consumer goods and should not be advised unless the need forthem is proven on the basis of scientific principles of public health The aim of such a policy seems to be to not have a policy and to utilise vaccines indiscriminately, withepidemiology taking a back seat. The policy is increasingly determined by the supply ìpushî by thepharmaceutical companies than the ìpullî demand of proven public health needs The introduction of newer vaccines into the immunisation programmes in India has been the subject of heated debate in recent years. While a number of concerns have been identified, the one that receivesprecedence over the others is that the commercial interest of the vaccine manufacturing lobby oftenoverrides public health interest'' hmIvkn≥ {]iv\w Hcp auen I hm Z am ImsX AXn s\ °p dn®v imkv{Xo bhpw bp‡n k l hp amb Hcp Xpd∂kwhmZw kaq l Øn¬ \S t° ≠Xv ASn b ¥n c {]m [m \y ap≈ Hcp kwK Xn bm Wv.
