Measles Immunization Coverage in Azerbaijan [message #227] Fri, 29 March 2013 09:29 Go to previous message

The 2006 Azerbaijan DHS reports two data points for measles immunization coverage. I believe that one of these numbers (58.5) represents coverage using the single antigen vaccine and one represents coverage using the conjugate MMR vaccine (61.1). I am interested in comparing measles immunization rates across all DHS reports, but I'm stuck on Azerbaijan. Are the dosages comparable enough that I could go into the data set and calculate coverage as the percentage of children receiving either immunization before 18 months of age? Is the country phasing one of these vaccines out? Curious because I haven't seen two measles data points in any of the other reports. Thanks in advance for your help!
