Introduction: This review focused on two scenarios like HPV vaccination and Covid-19 vaccination. In the First scenario Covid 19 Vaccinations are known to boost immune system and it acts as a shield which fight against virus. In India Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research had developed a vaccine Covaxin. The importance of covid-19 vaccination is to avoid severity and deaths from corona virus. Although, HPV vaccine and Covid 19 vaccines are different from each other and they are different in formulations affect and their usage, storage and type of administration, they are to be safe and effective. Hence, this article focusses on both covid 19 and HPV vaccination showing difference in costing, lives saved and budgetary impact. In the second scenario the importance of HPV vaccine is it protects against certain types of HPV that can lead to genital warts or cancer. In 2019 National immunization programs have been implemented in 124 countries and thus most of the girls and women were vaccinated by preventing cervical cancer.
Results and Discussion: Vaccines are saving millions of lives each year and they are most reliable and cost-effective for public health interventions. The efficacy of different Covid -19 vaccination m-RNA-1273 (70.4%), AstraZeneca (78%), Sinovac (94.5), Sputnik (91.4), Covaxin (81%), Covishiled (90%), m-RNA-BNT162B2 (94.1%). Gardasil has 98% efficacy and the efficacy of Cervarix is 91%.
Conclusion: The efficacy of Covid 19 vaccination saves lives and 2,07,421 lives saved correspond to 1,506,501 QALYs gained for covid 19. Total Lives saved by HPV vaccination for 9 to 14-year-old is lesser than 42, 000 annually.
