Bottom Line: A community-based immunization coverage survey is the standard way to estimate effective vaccination delivery to a target population in a region.Accompanying serosurveys can provide objective measures of protective immunity against vaccine-preventable diseases but pose considerable challenges with respect to specimen collection and preservation and community compliance.Critical to the success of this effort were serosurvey equipment and supplies, team composition, and tight coordination with the coverage survey.

Figure 5: When temporary workstations were inaccessible to vehicles, supplies and samples were carried on foot.

Mentions: The serosurvey teams set up temporary workstations in school and church compounds, health posts, and, on rare occasions where no shelter was available, under the shade of trees. Supplies and samples were carried on foot to and from the vehicle when terrain precluded vehicle access to the workstation (Figure 5Figure 5.
