Influenza Vaccination Coverage, Adults

  • Starting in August 2021, CDC sponsored questions about influenza vaccination on the Ipsos Knowledge Panel Omnibusexternal icon and NORC AmeriSpeak Omnibus external iconsurveys twice per month to assess national influenza vaccination coverage among adults.
  • Given potential limitations of these rapid surveys and underlying panels that might lead to over-estimation of vaccination coverage, confirmation with estimates from other surveys (to be available later) is needed.

*Some estimated percentages may not meet the NCHS standards of reliability; if none of the percentages within a bar meet these standards, the bar will not be presented. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/series/sr_02/sr02_175.pdfpdf icon

**Projected coverage is the weighted proportion of survey respondents who reported they had already received influenza vaccination since July 1, 2021 or plan to get influenza vaccination this season. Reported coverage is the weighted proportion of the survey respondents who reported receiving influenza vaccination for the 2020-21 season.</span?

***Interpretation of the difference of projected coverage minus reported coverage is based on the 95% confidence interval (CI) of the difference. The interpretation is “similar to last season” if the 95% CI covers zero; “Lower than last season” if the entire 95% CI is below zero; and “higher than last season” if the entire 95% CI is above zero.

^Estimates with a sample size < 30 are suppressed and shown in gray on the map. For the map, the ‘Other/Multiple Races, Non-Hispanic’ category includes American Indian/Alaskan Native, non-Hispanic, Asian, non-Hispanic, Pacific-Islander/Hawaiian Native, non-Hispanic, and persons who selected ‘Other’ and multiple races. Therefore, the ‘Other/Multiple Races, Non-Hispanic’ jurisdiction-level estimates on the map should not be compared with the ‘Other/Multiple Races, Non-Hispanic’ national estimates in the table.
