Data 4 Action: RCCE for COVID-19 Vaccine Demand in Eastern and Southern Africa

Many COVID-19 National Deployment and Vaccination Plans (NDVPs) do not explicitly include migrants beyond refugees and asylum seekers, however there is dissonance between inclusion of migrant groups in the NDVP and access to vaccines for migrant groups in practice (Figure 1). The goal for countries in the Eastern and Southern African region (ESAR) is to both include all migrant groups in NDVPs and to ensure access in practice. Countries should be supported to strengthen and sustain the efforts to include all migrant groups in vaccination, with particular attention to migrants in irregular situations, as only eight of the 19 countries have adequately included this group in both the NDVP and in practice.
