Child and Adolescent Health - Immunization Services

Scaling up immunization services is critical to the reduction of child mortality. Ninety-five percent (95%) of facilities reported the provision of child immunization services. Eighty- nine percent (89%) of facilities had infant vaccines; 87% had adolescent and adult vaccines; and only 53% had birth doses at the time of the assessment.

The frequency of offering these services was mainly weekly immunization days, either at the facility or as an outreach service. Sixteen percent (16%) of facilities provided the service monthly, and only 12% had the service available daily at the facility. Outreach immunization services were commonly available; about two of every three facilities visited offered the service weekly.
