It's a descriptive study of temporal trends of vaccination coverage and the incidence of preventable diseases by department. Both were made based on secondary sources. The incidences were calculated based on the information from the system of epidemiological surveillance of the National Health System and the population registered in each department. Vaccination coverage was calculated according to the information of the administered vaccine doses available in the National Institute of Statistics and the registered target population.
