Announcements: Adult Vaccination Coverage Estimates Online
New adult vaccination coverage estimates from the 2009 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) are now available online at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/stats-surv/nhis/2009-nhis.htm. Estimates of vaccination coverage for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, herpes zoster (shingles), human papillomavirus, influenza (2008--09 season), pneumococcal disease, and tetanus with and without pertussis are presented overall and by selected characteristics (i.e., age, vaccination target group status, and race/ethnicity).
These estimates update the 2008 estimates published in July 2009 (1). NHIS is a national household survey of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population in the United States.
