Guidance Note: Criteria to determine if a vaccine is routine or supplemental

Author: WHO/UNICEF
Tags: WHO

Abstract

While there are a multitude of strategies that can be used to deliver immunization services, there are only two types of doses that can be given--routine or supplemental.The main distinction is that a supplemental dose is "additional"or "extra"to the doses required by the national immunization schedule and may,or may not,be recorded in the child's immunization record. On the other hand, a routine dose is one which is prescribed according to the national immunization schedule, is administered based on the vaccination history of each individual, counts towards "fully immunized" status,and must be recorded on immunization cards and registers.
