Aggregate Reporting of Pandemic Influenza Vaccine Doses Administered - Background

The National Pandemic Influenza Plan calls for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies, specifically the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to “assess vaccine coverage rates.” To meet this objective, Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) grantees are requested to track pandemic influenza vaccine doses administered and to report the associated aggregate counts to CDC. PHEP grantees (also referred to as Project Areas) include 50 states, 4 major metropolitan areas, and 8 U.S. territories. The CRA system has been enhanced to accept aggregate counts of pandemic influenza vaccine doses administered and to aid in reporting vaccine coverage rates on a state-by-state basis. Three options for submitting aggregate counts to the CDC using CRA have been developed:


OPTION 1:  For Project Areas collecting data via an existing immunization information system (IIS), aggregate counts may be submitted via three standard data exchange formats.

OPTION 2:  For Project Areas collecting data manually, data may be entered directly via the CRA aggregate reporting screen using a Web browser.

OPTION 3:  For Project Areas using CDC’s CRA application to collect patient-level information, selected data elements will be automatically calculated and aggregated.

Aggregate reporting options were developed in collaboration with:

  • American Immunization Registry Association (AIRA);
  • Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO);
  • CDC’s National Center of Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD);
  • CDC’s National Center for Public Health Informatics (NCPHI);
  • CDC’s Pandemic Influenza Task Force;
  • State and partner jurisdictions.
