EPI stands for Expanded Programme on Immunization. It was started worldwide by World Health Organization in 1974. It is the process of increasing the number of vaccines in the vaccinations schedule in order to provide a wider coverage against infectious diseases among the population of the whole country. The EPI schedule in Bangladesh is given below:
EPI SCHEDULE IN BANGLADESH:

But, it can be given at any time after this period also.
