Home-based child vaccination records – A reflection on form

Abstract

Home-based child vaccination records play an important role in documenting immunization services received by children. We report some of the results of a review of home-based vaccination records from 55 countries. In doing so, we categorize records into three groups (vaccination only cards, vaccination plus cards, child health books) and describe differences in characteristics related to the quality of data recorded on immunization. Moreover, we highlight areas of potential concern and areas in need of further research and investigation to improve our understanding of the home-based vaccination record form related to improved data quality from immunization service delivery.
