Immunization

Refusal trends

Vaccine refusals in Nigeria have been declining steadily in high risk states, but continue to be a concern as a small number of noncompliant households can quickly become a large issue if not addressed. The Nigerian PEI team has recently started tracking noncompliance in the northern states most at risk for wild poliovirus transmission.

The maps here offer insight as to where communication interventions need to focus on noncompliance to ensure that communities have the information and support to feel confident to accept OPV and help Nigeria eradication polio.
