This publication describes a qualitative study carried out by PATH to examine the use and acceptability of maternal influenza immunisation in El Salvador. It documents lessons learned, including the vaccine policy decision-making process, the operational implications of vaccine delivery for pregnant women, and perceptions and concerns about the disease and the vaccine among community members and health workers. It identifies both successful strategies as well as challenges to vaccine uptake, and offers recommendations for countries considering the introduction of maternal influenza immunisation.
