Coverage of first dose of measles vaccination

What does it mean ?

This is the number of surviving infants who have received one dose of vaccine against measles. The vaccine is usually given in combination with rubella (MR) or with mumps and rubella (MMR). In most immunisation schedules, this is given to children under 1 year, but some countries give it to older children. This indicator is expressed as a percentage of the corresponding mid-year population in a specific year and in a given country.

Why does it matter ?

Immunisation is essential for reducing under-five mortality. Estimates for this indicator are used to monitor coverage of immunisation services, and to guide disease eradication and elimination efforts. It is a good indicator of health system performance.

How is it collected ?

The preferred sources of data are facility reporting systems or household surveys. Estimates of immunisation coverage are typically based on two sources of data: Reports of vaccinations performed by service providers (service/facility records) and household surveys containing items on children’s vaccination history.

More information on calculations

Immunisation coverage estimates based on administrative data (service/facility records) are calculated by dividing the total number of vaccinations given by the number of children in the target population. For most vaccines, the target population is the national yearly number of births or number of surviving infants, which may vary depending on country policies and the specific vaccine. Immunisation coverage surveys are frequently used in connection with administrative data. Household surveys include the UNICEF-supported Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) and the US Agency for International Development–supported Demographic and Health Survey (DHS).
