Immunization Supply Chain Sizing Tool


A planning tool for national programme managers to estimate the size of the required supply chain infrastructure for vaccine storage and transportation at each level and facility. Uses outputs of the full-course vaccination to establish the desired storage capacity for vaccine and safe injection supplies for all levels of a national immunization programme. It provides application for national or intermediate levels for: • Scenario analysis of different vaccine options used in the national programme • Assessing cold chain and logistics needs in support of new vaccine introduction • Assessing logistics needs for vaccination campaigns • Estimating capital cost of cold chain needs in support of routine vaccine introduction or vaccination campaigns
