Immunization in Practice. Module 6. Monitoring and Surveillance


This module explains how to collect and report data for the monitoring of immunization services and the surveillance of vaccine-preventable diseases and adverse events following immunization (AEFI). Monitoring and surveillance are included together since data from both are usually reported in a summary form forwarded to central levels. The process of recording the data is described first. This is followed by a description of the summary reporting process and the ways in which these data can be analysed and used.
