The Ministry of Health requested UNITAG to make recommendations on the prioritization of various new vaccines to introduce to the routine immunisation schedule. Challenges to the immunisation program’s vaccine introduction efforts such as low coverage and limited financing prompted this request. The five new vaccines proposed for introduction were: Hepatitis B birth dose, Yellow Fever, Meningococcal A, 2nd dose of measles containing vaccine, and a switch from Tetanus Toxoid to Tetanus diphtheria.
