The following pages contain three tables with the same data presented, differing only in terms of how it’s ordered.
Table 1 lists countries alphabetically.
Table 2 lists countries in order of recommended or mandated vaccinations for children under age 5.
Table 3 lists countries in order of mortality rates
of children under age 5.
Note: All vaccine schedules are as of 2006. Some countries use combination vaccines. All schedule counts have been normalized to compare to the US schedule. For example, if a country uses an MMR-Varicella combination vaccine, it counts as 2 vaccines.
