NEW! WHO resources on Catch-up Vaccination
1. Leave No One Behind: Guidance for planning and implementing catch-up vaccination – this is a foundational document that covers catch-up vaccination as an essential component of a strong immunization programme, outlining the basic system enablers required to allow and promote catch-up through routine immunization.
The guidance consists of two parts:
a. Section 1: Principles of catch-up vaccination
b. Section 2: Special catch-up vaccination efforts following an interruption of services
2. Closing immunization gaps caused by COVID-19 (PPT) – this resource aims to address the more immediate needs of prioritizing strategies for restarting immunization services and planning mass catch-up activities. This highlights key considerations in the context of Covid-19 for various catch-up strategies and makes reference, where applicable, to more comprehensive resources available.
The documents are available on the WHO website and in the TechNet libary
