Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Adult Vaccinations Administered

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Vaccinations Administered in Pharmacies and Physician Medical Offices*, Adults 60 years and older, United States

  • The projected pharmacy estimates are based on IQVIA,‡ LRx product and vaccinations administered in retail pharmacies (including chain, mass merchandise, food stores, and independent pharmacies). The estimates include RSV vaccinations that were billed to insurers (i.e. claims) or paid by cash. Evaluations are underway to determine average time-lag for claims and data processing for RSV vaccinations; for comparison purposes, initial evaluation of IQVIA flu vaccination estimates is available and indicates that the reported number of doses administered for a particular week increased over the next few weeks.
  • The projected physician medical offices estimates are based on IQVIA’s Dx product. The estimates include RSV vaccinations that are claims-based only, and estimates are expected to increase over time for a given time period as claims are processed and adjudicated. Evaluations are underway to determine average time-lag for claims and data processing for RSV vaccinations; for comparison purposes, initial evaluation of IQVIA flu vaccination estimates is available and indicates that the reported number of doses administered for a particular week increased over the next few weeks.
  • Vaccinations administered in other settings such as workplaces and community settings are not included in these data.
