Data Notes

This measure is derived from data collected by the National Immunization Survey (NIS). The NIS is conducted annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor childhood immunization coverage.  From 2002-2008, the recommended series used was 4:3:1:3:3:1 [4 diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine (DTaP), 3 poliovirus vaccine (polio), 1 measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR), 3 Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine (Hib), 3 hepatitis B vaccine (Hep B), 1 Varicella]. In 2009, 4:3:1:3:3:1-S is used as the recommended series because it takes into account the differences in the brand of Hib vaccine used as well as the required suspension of the Hib booster dose. In 2010, 4:3:1:3:3:1-PS is used as the recommended series because it takes into account the differences in the brand of Hib vaccine used as well as the required suspension of the Hib booster dose.
