Extract

Vaccination coverage in 2013 among US children aged 19 to 35 months was similar to the previous year—70.4% for the combined vaccine series—with fewer than 1% of children not receiving any vaccines, according to the National Immunization Survey, which has estimated vaccination rates for the last 20 years based on telephone surveys.

Immunization rates for 4 vaccines met the 90% national target set by Healthy People 2020: 1 or more measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), 3 or more hepatitis B, 3 or more poliovirus, and 1 or more varicella doses. Despite a high national MMR immunization rate of 91.9%, 17 states fell below the 90% coverage target and 1 child in 12 doesn’t receive the MMR vaccine early enough, according to the analysis (Elam-Evans LD et al. MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2014;63[34]:741-748).
