Vaccine safety events: managing the communications response – WHO – April 2013

“Managing a country’s immunization programme requires in-depth knowledge of the technical side of vaccination. Increasingly, however, programme managers are also being asked to respond to communications issues caused by real or perceived vaccine-related events (VRE); issues for which they may not have been trained.

This manual provides practical, informative strategies and tools to help plan and manage a communications response following a VRE in a local community, at a national level, or beyond. By reading this manual, immunization programme managers will learn how to use communications strategies and tools to increase public trust and confidence in vaccines, and to minimize the negative impact of VREs.”

Guide to tailoring immunization programmes (TIP) launched – WHO – 26 April 2013

“The “Guide to tailoring immunization programmes (TIP)” aims to provide proven methods and tools to assist national immunization programmes (NIPs) design targeted strategies that increase uptake of infant and childhood vaccinations. The Guide provides tools to identify susceptible populations, determine barriers to vaccination and implement evidence-based interventions.

The strategies outlined in this Guide may be used at any time to maintain high coverage rates, but may be particularly valuable when pockets of low vaccination coverage or increased susceptibility to VPDs are identified. The Guide may be used independently by Member States or implemented in conjunction with technical support from the WHO Regional Office for Europe.”

Audience Research: Delayers of Infant Immunisation – NZ Ministry of Health – 26 February 2013

“In November 2011, the new immunisation health target seeking to improve immunisation timeliness of young infants was introduced. The target is 95 percent of all eight-month-olds are fully immunised with three scheduled vaccinations at six weeks, three months and five months by December 2014.

To achieve this goal it is important to understand the reasons some parents delay their childs immunisation and messages that will encourage and support parents to immunise their infants on time.

The Ministry of Health commissioned qualitative audience research focusing on parents who have delayed one or more of their baby or young infant’s primary immunisations.

The findings will be used to develop cost-effective strategies that will futher make a difference to New Zealand immunisation rates and the health of New Zealand children and communities.

The research concluded that:”
