Dear TechNet colleagues
i'm looking for the updated version of the Effective Vaccine Management assessment “EVM” tools, if anyone has it; appreciate if shared it with me
Dear all, I am a researcher at the University of Oxford working on a project to compare country vaccination policies worldwide and was wondering if you could help me with finding some information. Could you please tell me whether any of the vaccines recommended in the national immunisation schedule in your country are mandatory, such as in order to enter school? And do you know of any legislation on which this is based? I will of course acknowledge any contributions. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! You can see in the map below I'm slowly starting to get country data but I still have some gaps. I intend this to be an open-access resource for people to provide the first comprehensive list of vaccination policies worldwide.
