The post campaign coverage survey is planned for evaluating achievements of national immunization program (NIP) in reaching children through typhoid campaign in each province.
- Primary objective:
- To estimate the proportion of children aged 15 months to 14 years at the time of the campaign (national and provincial) who were vaccinated against typhoid during the national catch-up campaign conducted during April/May 2022
- To estimate the proportion of children aged 12-23 and 24-35 months at the time of the survey (national and provincial) who have received vaccination for each of the vaccines recommended in the national immunization schedule for Nepal (except TCV through RI).
- To assess awareness of the national typhoid vaccination campaign among the mothers/caretakers of the eligible children.
- To assess behavioral and social drivers (BeSD) for vaccination and their relation with non-participation in national typhoid vaccination campaign among the mothers/caretakers of eligible children who did not receive the vaccines in the campaigns.
- To assess the proportion of 15-35 months children who received zero dose or one dose of measles rubella vaccine in routine were identified during the national catch-up campaign conducted during April/May 2022 (among campaign card holders)
- To assess proportion of home-based vaccination card ownership and retention and assess the reasons for an absent home-based vaccination record among the mother/caretakers of children aged 12-35 month at time of survey.
- To assess vaccination timeliness with routine vaccines and other related indicators (such as missed-opportunities for vaccination for selected vaccine-doses) among children with documented evidence of routine immunization
- To assess behavioral and social drivers (BeSD) for immunization and their relation with non-participation in routine immunization services among the caretakers of children aged 12-35 months who have not received all vaccinations or missed any of the schedule doses in routine.
- This age cohort will allow estimating coverage with the second dose of MR vaccine, to verify that coverage is closer to that of other vaccines. It will also allow to better understand catch-up of routine immunization for infants who may have initially missed routine vaccine-doses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
