Little is known about the role of (economic) information or evidence in the different stages of the decision-making process on vaccine introduction. By conducting a document analysis on the public decision-making process of introducing human Papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine into the national vaccination program (NVP) in the Netherlands, we aim to gain insight into which information plays a role during the introduction of a vaccination programme.
