American Indian and Alaska Native Vaccination Data

(Source: Indian Health Service)

The Indian Health Service’s (IHS) Influenza-like Illness Awareness System (IIAS) captures flu vaccination coverage among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) patients who received care in an IHS and in some Tribal or Urban Indian (I/T/U) healthcare facilities.

The health care personnel flu vaccine coverage is captured through the IHS National Immunization Reporting System (NIRS) and includes employees who work in IHS and in some tribal and urban healthcare facilities.

There may be gaps in both the IIAS and NIRS systems since not all I/T/U healthcare facilities report.
