Project #77:
Investigating the impact of COVID-19 on childhood immunisations - prototyping a dashboard

    The pandemic put pressure on routine healthcare services such as family practices, who are usually responsible for giving a range of childhood vaccines, up to the age when children start school. We set out to investigate the impact of the pandemic on childhood immunisations, for example to explore whether they were more likely to be given later or missed altogether. We aimed to produce a prototype of a dashboard which would show, nationally and at local levels, the impacts of the pandemic on childhood immunisation rates and any “catch-up” action which may be required.
