Annually, RIVM publishes an overview of surveillance data and scientific developments of the 12 infectious diseases against which the Dutch National Immunisation Programme (RVP in Dutch) vaccinates. The report on Surveillance and Developments also contains information about infectious diseases that are not (yet) included in the National Immunisation Programme, but for which a vaccine is available, such as chickenpox and shingles. 

The 2019 - 2020 report on Surveillance and Developments of the National immunisation Programme shows an increase in national vaccination coverage for the first time in five years, for almost all vaccinations. For children born in 2017, vaccination coverage against mumps, measles and rubella (MMR) increased by 0.7% to 93.6%. National vaccination coverage for the HPV vaccination for girls, born in 2005, also increased by 7.5% to 53%.
