Using Social Data for Immunization


Data is a useful tool for strengthening SBC and C4D strategies. It can be used to understand vaccination coverage in polio SIAs; the proportion of children who are missed due to caregiver refusal of vaccination; the attitudes and beliefs of caregivers regarding polio vaccines and polio vaccination campaigns; and other social barriers to achieving sufficient vaccination coverage to stop an outbreak or to eradicate wild poliovirus. The polio programme has developed a set of tools and resources for collecting and using data of this kind.
