Proposed indicators for vaccination of pregnant women
Specific indicators should be established for the newly-introduced influenza vaccine and should subsequently be included in the monitoring and evaluation planning of the immunization programme. The following indicators are suggested by the writing group of this manual for consideration in the monitoring and evaluation plan:
- percentage of pregnant women vaccinated against influenza;
- percentage of pregnant women with a minimum of four antenatal care visits;
- percentage of pregnant women with an antenatal care visit in the first trimester;
- percentage of newborns or young infants of mothers vaccinated against influenza (these data can be collected at birth or during the DTP1 visit).
