Routine childhood vaccination


June 13, 2022 | Colin O. Jarrett |  The Caribbean Immunization Technical Advisory Group, CITAG is alerting Caribbean Ministers of Health and Chief Medical Officers that routine childhood vaccination coverage in Caribbean countries has fallen significantly.

This downfall in routine childhood vaccination is as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.  In some countries, as many as 3 out of 10 infants are not fully vaccinated putting them at risk of measles, polio and other diseases eliminated in the Americas that continue to circulate in other areas of the world.

It is essential that countries conduct routine vaccination campaigns targeted at children under 5 years of age to ensure that they are fully vaccinated.
