Abstract

Immunization coverage in Indian states varies from 24.8 % to 89.7%. Comparison between the routine vaccine coverage with two research cohorts in Tamil Nadu showed the routine immunization system performed well with >80% coverage for EPI vaccines and reasonable timeliness. Given Tamil Nadu’s performance, this and similar states should not be denied access to new antigens, pending improvement in coverage in other parts of India.
