WHO: 1 in 10 infants received no vaccinations last year

Monday, July 17, 2017   (0 Comments)

A new report from UNICEF and the World Health Organization (WHO) said that, globally, 10% of infants under the age of 12 months did not receive any vaccinations in 2016. These estimates suggest that 12.9 million children missed their first dose of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP)-containing vaccine. Another 6.6 million infants who did receive their first dose of DTP did not complete the full 3-dose DTP schedule in 2016.  These findings and others are published in a new report, State of inequality: Childhood immunization.
