"In the field of vaccination, “home visit” interventions involve providing face-to-face services to clients in their homes. Services can include information and education on vaccination in general or on specific vaccines, assessment of vaccine status, referral or in some cases, provision of vaccinations (Community Preventive Services Task Force, 2016). Home visits can focus specifically on vaccination or focus more broadly on health, prevention, parenthood, etc. and address vaccination (Community Preventive Services Task Force, 2016; Harvey et al. 2015).

Providers may be health professionals (such as nurses), or non-professional providers who have undergone specific training as part of the intervention (health mediators, volunteer mothers, etc., grouped under the term “Lay Health Workers” in the scientific literature) (Community Preventive Services Task Force, 2016; Lewin et al. 2010)." - Home Visits
