April 2022: Nepal introduces TCV into routine immunization schedule

Nepal ran a typhoid vaccination campaign April 8-May 1, after which the country introduced typhoid conjugate vaccine (TCV) into its routine immunization program. During the three-week campaign, 50,000 vaccination sites aimed to reach nearly 7.5 million children ages 15 months to 15 years, as well as provide immunizations to children ages 15 months to 23 months who have missed other routine vaccines. The drive also identified zero-dose children. Nepal is the fourth country—after Pakistan, Liberia, and Zimbabwe—supported by Gavi to introduce TCV into its routine immunization schedule. UNICEF
