Children with incomplete vaccine uptake in Norway - project description

Published Updated

The study aims to assess vaccination coverage for children born in Norway to parents from some of the largest immigrant groups resident in Norway.


Summary

This project is part of a broader ongoing work to assess attitudes to vaccination in Norway, and to identify risk factors for declining vaccine uptake. The childhood vaccination programme is a right for children in Norway and is offered free of charge at municipal primary health clinics. The coverage is currently high. Still, there may be population subgroups with lower vaccine uptake. It is important to identify whether there are subgroups with low vaccine uptake, so that communication- and outreach activities can be better targeted. We will use population data from the National Registry and data on vaccination from the Norwegian Immunization Registry (SYSVAK) to study the coverage of measles and pertussis vaccination at 2 years of age for children born in Norway in 2000 to 2016 from parents originating from ten selected non-western countries. These children have had the same access to the childhood vaccination programme as all children in Norway. We will assess country specific vaccine coverage and whether vaccination practices are affected by parents country of birth or time since arrival in Norway.
