An evaluation of the national measles vaccination campaign in the new shanty areas of Khayelitsha.
A local component of the national measles vaccination campaign was evaluated in an area undergoing rapid urbanisation near Cape Town.
Four serial cross-sectional cluster samples were used.
Proven vaccination coverage before the campaign was 55,8% (95% confidence interval (Cl) 46 - 66%), immediately afterwards it was 71,1% (95% Cl 65 - 77%), and 6 months later 73,6% (95% Cl 67 - 80%). The increase was not sustained among Transkei-born children.
