Vaccination is an essential part of keeping preteens and teens healthy and protected from serious diseases. Vaccines are recommended for preteens and teens to protect against diseases like whooping cough, meningococcal disease, and cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). Preteens and teens should also get any vaccines they missed in childhood.
Local, state, and federal health departments use surveys and other data sources such as Immunization Information Systems (IIS) to estimate vaccination coverage (the proportion of teens receiving vaccinations) and identify where additional efforts are needed to increase vaccination coverage. TeenVaxView is designed to help you access survey data collected by CDC and translate data into action.
