Europe and Central Asia Regional Immunization's Snapshot
WHO and UNICEF estimates of national immunization coverage in 2022
New data from UNICEF and the World Health Organization (WHO) offers a snapshot of children's immunization coverage across the Europe and Central Asia region.
Across the region, more than 200,000 are still not fully vaccinated. In 2022, 229,000 out of nearly 4.1 million surviving infants in the region did not receive the three recommended doses of DTP vaccine.
With over 60 per cent of reporting countries achieved at least 90% coverage for DTP3, 12 out of 21 countries in the region (excluding Kosovo) sustained the target coverage of 90% or above for DTP3 for the past four years.
However, the Measles vaccine regional coverage is below the key target. In 2022, the regional coverage of MCV1 was 93% compared to the target of 95% needed to prevent outbreaks.
