It includes materials adapted from polio on planning, monitoring and use of data to improve the service, that can be used at any level. Immunization in practice is both a resource and training guide that can be used in workshops and supportive supervision visits. It is useful both for staff who are learning to provide immunization services and for those who have been doing so for some time. Its format is easy to follow. Extensive use is made of tables, figures, sample forms, reports, maps, charts and practical tips to assist staff in planning, implementing and monitoring immunization services.
