Immunization coverage is measured to assess the performance of the Expanded Programme on Immunization.
In 1988 we conducted a coverage survey among 12-23 month-old children in the North Arcot District (population 5 007 746) in southern India.
In each of the 12 towns a 30-cluster sample survey was conducted.
In the 35 rural blocks with 1590 panchayats, 159 were selected systematically and all children (n=7300) were surveyed.
In the towns, coverages ranged for measles vaccine from 29 to 53%, BCG from 65 to 91% and OPV and DPT third dose from just over 60% to just over 80%. In the rural areas, coverages ranged for measles vaccine from 10.8 to 19.3%, BCG 25.1-34. 1%, DPT third dose 42.2-50.4% and OPV third dose 39.6-48%.
