$179 / year

This dataset provides information about child immunization uptake rates for the 6-1n-1 vaccine by 12 and 24 months of rates by Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) 2016 quintile by National Health Service (NHS) board in Scotland. It also includes Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), Rotavirus and Meningococcal serogroup B (MenB) by 12 months of age, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR1), Hib/MenC, PCV Booster (PCVB) and MenB by 24 months of age for evaluation period in the Year 2018.

Complexity

Children in Scotland are protected through immunization against many serious infectious diseases. Vaccination programmes aim both to protect the individual and to prevent the spread of these diseases within the wider population. As a public health measure, immunizations are very effective in reducing the burden of disease.

This publication provides an annual update of immunization uptake rates for children in Scotland at 12 months and 24 months. The release includes data to 31 December 2018. Data are presented by NHS Board, local authority and deprivation category.

The European Region of the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that on a national basis at least 95% of children are immunized against diseases preventable by immunization and targeted for elimination or control. These include diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib), measles, mumps and rubella. In Scotland a target of 95% uptake of one dose of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine by five years of age (with a supplementary measure at 24 months) was introduced in 2006 to focus efforts on reducing the number of susceptible children entering primary school.

Uptake rates, sometimes referred to as coverage, relates to the number of children immunized against a particular disease as a proportion of the children eligible to have received the appropriate vaccine. Uptake rates are calculated as follows:
(Total number of eligible children immunized /Total number of eligible children in the population) X 100

Scottish_Index_of_Multiple_Deprivation_2016_QuintileIndicates the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2016 (Scotland level) Quintile (population weighted). There are 1 to 5 values in SIMD quintiles in which 1 indicates the most deprived and 5 indicates the least deprived. There are a small number of records where it is not possible to derive a SIMD quintile from the postcode recorded. This category is labeled as 'unknown'.string-
