Abstract

The new W.H.O. recommendation which drops the coverage criterion for adoption of the 2-dose measles vaccine schedule makes some African countries eligible for the 2-dose schedule which were previously ineligible. We look at the implications of the new recommendation for Ethiopia and Nigeria the two largest African countries which are eligible under the new recommendation.
