It will provide immunization against a range of vaccine-preventable diseases that are increasingly affecting the population, including pneumococcal disease, influenza, human papillomavirus (HPV) and hepatitis A and B, among others.

“Establishing our new Center of Excellence is an important step in demonstrating our commitment to delivering quality care for our patients. Through this partnership with Pfizer, we remain focused on scaling adult vaccination adoption while providing the community with effective solutions to prevent vaccine-preventable diseases,” said Pavan Gorukanti, Director of Yashoda Hospitals in a press release.

Santosh Taur, Director, Medical Affairs, Pfizer Vaccines said: “The establishment of this Center of Excellence serves as an important milestone in our journey to support the country’s healthcare system and equip both healthcare providers and patients with key information to inform decisions in the health care such as immunization. ”

In India, roughly 95 percent of deaths from vaccine-preventable diseases occur in adults. Although vaccination for adults is an effective, evidence-based solution to improve people’s quality of life, its uptake in the country remains low, the release said.
