dc.description.abstractThe countries of the Americas, with support from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), have made remarkable progress in providing children with an umbrella of protection against basic vaccine-preventable diseases. Sustained high national immunization coverage levels, the eradication of polio, the interruption of endemic measles virus transmission, and efforts towards rubella and congenital rubella syndrome elimination are hemispheric benchmarks of this progress. Since 2020, the Region has also been facing the COVID-19 pandemic and major efforts have been taken to ensure administration of COVID-19 vaccines across all countries. Countries are now vaccinating age groups outside those usually targeted in the traditional childhood immunization program. Introducing seasonal influenza vaccine in adult populations at risk, vaccinating adolescents and adults, men, and women for rubella elimination, and defining the disease burden of cervical cancer are activities that support the critical need for national immunization programs to transition from child to family immunization. In support to countries, one of PAHO's roles is to disseminate information that can highlight progress and challenges faced in the Region. To that end, PAHO regularly publishes several technical documents related to immunization. The annually published "Immunization in the Americas" brochure summarizes immunization coverage in the Region of the Americas, in addition to illustrating the work done by the Region’s immunization programs for that year. Immunization in the Americas: 2022 Summary includes tables with the Region's demographic, morbidity, program management, financing, and socioeconomic data, as well as reported immunization coverage and surveillance indicators, among other items.en_US
