Abstract

This brief report summarizes the 2010 revision (July 2011) of the WHO and UNICEF estimates of national routine immunization coverage. In spite of improvements in immunization coverage (DTP3: 74% during 2000 vs 85% during 2010; MCV: 72% during 2000 vs 85% during 2010), the benefits of vaccination continue to elude many of the world's children suggesting the need for a renewed commitment and investment in routine immunization programmes worldwide.
