Abstract
I mmunization as one of the most important preventive measures has a long tradition in countries of former Yugoslavia and also Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H). Thanks to the longstanding good vaccination coverage during the war 1992-1995, we had a satisfying epidemiological situation related to vaccine-preventable diseases. After the war, the health care reform in B&H was based on the introduction of family medicine as the basis of primary health care. Family medicine teams provide health protection for all family members, except children up to 7 years. One of the segments of work of the teams is immunization. In B&H there are two immunization programmes: for mandatory and facultative immunisation. All persons aged 0-18 years are included in the programme of mandatory immunization which includes the application of the following vaccines: BCG (against tuberculosis), viral hepatitis B, tetanus, whooping cough, poliomyelitis, measles, rubella, mumps and rabies vaccine (for people who have been bitten by rabid or rabies suspect animals). The obligation of family medicine teams is to check the vaccinal status of all people that come to the health care institution and if needed, to vaccinate the vaccines that are missing. Immunization of adults is implemented as preexposure, postexposure and for tavellers. Preexposure and postexposure protection, except the protection against rabies, is carried out by family medicine teams. Immunisation for travellers is carried out in travel clinics, but the counselling role of the family medicine teams has a great importance. Conclusion: Family medicine teams have an important role in the implementation of immunization programmes in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Key words: Immunization, family medicine, B&H
