Immunisations: Targets and Performance

Supporting Information

Lewisham’s performance in uptake of key routine childhood vaccines has broadly remained stable in recent years:

  • Over the past three years, Lewisham has been in-line or above the London average for both Diphtheria vaccines (at 1 year and 5) and for the first does of MMR (by 2 years).
  • Uptake of the first dose of MMR (MMR1) at two years of age remains steady and there has been a notable improvement in uptake of MMR2 since autumn 2015, due to work undertaken by the Immunisation Clinical Coordinator.
  • However more progress is needed to achieve the 95% uptake identified by WHO as necessary to avoid outbreaks of measles.
