  1. Legend: Strategies reflect different implementation approaches and target population. “Infants” mean children approximately six weeks of age at first vaccination. “Routine” vaccination means that it is happening continuously as individuals reach the target age. “Catch-up” campaign means a one-time, mass vaccination targeting the indicated age range. “Periodic” campaign means regular mass vaccinations targeting the indicated age range, at the indicated frequency.
