Abstract
Risk groups: This summary of economic evaluations of pneumococcal vaccination reveals that in general, pneumococcal vaccination of the elderly and of particular risk groups (the elderly with underlying illnesses and HIV+ patients) is found to be relatively cost-effective and potentially cost-saving to the health care sector and to society General population: Universal pneumococcal vaccination of the general population on the other hand is a relatively cost-ineffective intervention in the health care sector. Perspectives: Although the reviewed analyses have become more refined over the years as more disease and prevention related data became available, there is still room for improvement in future economic evaluations on this subject.
