The following report displays data and figures on the introduction status of Hib vaccine, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), rotavirus vaccine, and inactivated polio vaccine (IPV)* both globally and in 73 Gavi countries (currently eligible and graduating countries). It uses information stored in the Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS) online database maintained by IVAC at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and supported by Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance; the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; and The Task Force for Global Health. The images and text below describe: the number of countries that have introduced each vaccine or plan to in the future, global and Gavi rates of vaccine coverage and access, historical trends in the rate of global vaccine introduction, and the introduction status of every country individually. The report concludes with a more detailed description of VIMS and its potential uses.
