# Number of Infants to be Immunized Calculator

Posted by Dinesh onTo estimate the **number of infants to be immunized** in the coming year, it is necessary to estimate the number of infants alive at one year.

No. of infants who have died during the year ( No of infants who have died during the year can be calculated by using the Infant Mortality Rate of the area).

**Children below 3 years of age:** average population of children below 3 years is approximately 8% of total population in most of the Indian States. This figure will assist the ANM in estimating no. of Vitamin A doses necessary. =`1,00,000 X 8/1000 = 8,000`

**Children below 5 years of age:** This age group constitutes approximately 13% of total population. The estimation of this number would assist the ANM in estimating the number of D.T. doses to be used. =`1,00,000 X 13/1000 = 13,000`
