Vaccination is an important part of keeping children healthy and protected from potentially serious diseases like measles and whooping cough. CDC’s recommended immunization schedule helps protect children from 14 serious diseases by the time they reach 2 years old.
Local, state, and federal health departments use surveys and other data sources such as immunization information systems (IISs) to estimate vaccination coverage (the proportion of children receiving vaccinations) and identify where additional efforts are needed to increase vaccination coverage. ChildVaxView is designed to help you access survey data collected by CDC and translate data into action.
