"Purpose of this guidance:
- To assist national immunization programmes to establish or refine a catch-up vaccination policy and catch-up schedule, as an essential component of a well-functioning immunization programme.
- To ensure eligible individuals who miss routine vaccine doses for any reason can be identified and vaccinated at the earliest opportunity.
- To lay out strategies for continuously implementing catch-up vaccination as a component of routine immunization and as an integrated part of the healthcare system, as well as describe intensified strategies to close “immunization gaps” following a significant disruption in immunization services."
