Country notes:
Denmark
January 2001: Similar problem for 1996 as for indicators 280101 and 280102, i.e. the vaccination program changed as of 1 January 1997 from a 15 to 12 months vaccination date The Serum Institute calculated the percent as the vaccinations given with the share of children 15 months (before 1996) and 12 months after 1995. In 1996 all children between 12-14 months and vaccinated were just divided by share of 12-months children which given a percent larger than 100 so no data available for that year.
Slovakia
January 2001: This vaccination is not carried out.
