Increasing RI Coverage by Reducing Missed Opportunities for Vaccination

The MOV strategy is about establishing a system so that any child/person eligible for vaccination who comes to a health facility/mobile health service (for whatever reason), receives the needed vaccines during their visit.

Missed opportunities for vaccination can occur during visits to health facilities/mobile health services for immunization (“vaccination contact”), as well as during visits to health facilities/mobile health services for curative services (e.g. treatment of mild fever, cough, diarrhoea, bruises; “treatment contact”), other preventive services (e.g. growth monitoring, nutrition assessments and oral rehydration training sessions, etc.), or while accompanying a family member to a health facility for any type of service.
