2019 National Vaccination Project

national vaccination project 03
More children are vaccinated in Myanmar than ever before, but significant gaps in coverage remain, and there have been outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases like measles and diphtheria.
Around 87 per cent of children in Myanmar receive the BCG vaccination against tuberculosis, but there is rapid drop-off in coverage for necessary doses of follow-up vaccines, including the 5-in-1 vaccine against multiple diseases, and the vaccines against polio and measles rubella. This means that just over half of all children between 12 and 23 months receive full basic immunization coverage. UNICEF supports the Government to strengthen national systems for harmonized procurement, logistics and supply-chain management to reduce stock-outs of vaccines, and to equitably deliver quality routine immunization and other vital services, especially in hard to reach areas.
We are supporting the introduction of new vaccines under Myanmar’s comprehensive Expanded Programme on Immunization Multi-Year Plan 2017–2021.
On November 28th 2019, at the MYTCL Mine Town Hospital all local children have received vaccinations against measles and German measles.
