a A commune is a geopolitical unit in Haiti. The Port-au-Prince metropolitan area comprises seven communes. One of the seven – Tabarre – is not shown here because rapid monitoring was not implemented there during the post-disaster vaccination campaign.

b For the measles and rubella vaccine. Calculated by dividing the number of doses of vaccine administered to children aged 9 months to 7 years in a camp by the number of children of the same age group in the camp – assumed to be 15.7% of the estimated camp population – and then multiplying by 100.

c A camp was targeted for mop-up vaccination if, according to vaccination cards and caregiver recall, more than 25% of the children aged 9 months to 7 years included in the convenience sample used for rapid monitoring had not participated in the campaign.
