Immunization Schedule

The important determinants behind the National immunization scheduling in India are:-

  1. Vaccines need to be administered in cycles of doses and schedules that produce an adequate immunological response in the recipient.
  2. The schedule needs to be administratively and logistically implementable.
  3. The schedule needs to adopt acceptable strategies to enhance compliance and uptake by the target population.
