The European Region is fully compliant with the global OPV switch

Recommended Posts

All 19 countries in the WHO European Region that had trivalent OPV (tOPV) in their immunization programmes discontinued this vaccine by the global deadline of 1 May and either introduced bivalent OPV (bOPV) or switched to and inactivated polio vaccine (IPV)-only schedule. The two-week validation period is ongoing, and by 15 May all countries are expected to submit formal validation reports to WHO.


The attached map reflects the situation with the tOPV switch in the WHO European Region as of 3 May 2016. More maps and the global overview can be found on the Global Polio Eradication website: http://maps.who.int/OPV_switch/
