Countries, Mandated/Recommended Vaccines for Children Under Age 5, and Mortality Rates of Children Under Age 5 The

following pages contain three tables with the same data presented, differing only in terms of how it's ordered. Table 1 lists countries alphabetically. Table 2 lists countries in order of recommended or mandated vaccinations for children under age 5. Table 3 lists countries in order of mortality rates of children under age 5. _____________________
Note: All vaccine schedules are as of 2006. Some countries use combination vaccines. All schedule counts have been normalized to compare to the US schedule. For example, if a country uses an MMR-Varicella combination vaccine, it counts as 2 vaccines.
