Evaluation of a poliomyelitis immunization campaign in madras city india

, : Evaluation of a poliomyelitis immunization campaign in madras city india. Bulletin of the World Health Organization 64(6): 861-866

A city-wide oral polio vaccine (OPV) immunization campaign, aimed at the 3-36-month age group, was carried out in Madras city during the first 3 months of 1985 as a joint effort by government and voluntary agencies. Wide publicity was given to the campaign. An evaluation of the results was conducted using the 30-cluster sample survey method. The campaign succeeded in rapidly increasing the vaccine coverage to 94%, 88% and 72% for, respectively, the first, second, and third doses of OPV. Although a variety of publicity methods were used, nearly half the parents were reached through word-of-mouth information. It is proposed that similar campaigns for immunization should be carried out every year till the health care system develops the capability of attaining a high level of population coverage.
