Health Indicator Report of Immunization - Childhood Coverage with 4:3:1:3:3:1:4, National Immunization Survey

Immunizations are one of the most cost-effective health prevention measures. They have been cited by the U.S. Public Health Service as one of the Ten Great Public Health Achievements in the 20th Century. Vaccines play an essential role in reducing and eliminating disease. By two years of age, it is recommended that all children should have received 4 doses of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTaP), 3 doses of polio, 1 dose of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), 3 doses of Haemophilis Influenza, type B (Hib), 3 doses of Hepatitis B, 1 dose of Varicella, and 4 doses of Pneumococcal vaccine. This series is referred to in shorthand as "4:3:1:3:3:1:4."

Definition

Children aged 19-35 months who have received the recommended vaccine series (4 DTaP, 3 Polio, 1 MMR, 3 Hib, 3 HepB, 1 Varicella, and 4 Pneumococcal).

Numerator

Number of children aged 19-35 months that have received at least 4 doses of DTaP, 3 doses of Polio, 1 dose of MMR, 3 doses of Hib, 3 doses of Hep B, 1 dose of Varicella, and 4 doses of Pneumococcal vaccine.

Denominator

Children aged 19-35 months.

Healthy People Objective: IID-8, Increase the proportion of children aged 19 to 35 months who receive the recommended doses of DTaP, polio, MMR, Hib, hepatitis B, varicella and PCV vaccines

U.S. Target: 80 percent

Other Objectives

Related to IID-7 Achieve and maintain effective vaccination coverage levels for universally recommended vaccines among young children.

What Is Being Done?

In New Mexico, the Vaccines for Children program makes recommended childhood vaccines available for all children through age 18.

Evidence-based Practices

The New Mexico Department of Health provides quality improvement visits to Vaccines for Children providers to promote best practices for immunizations. Measuring and tracking coverage rates helps providers diagnose missed opportunities for immunizations. NMSIIS, the state on-line immunization registry, tracks immunizations received so that children can be recalled to be brought up-to-date for any needed shots. Learn more about evidence-based practices for childhood immunizations from the CDC Community Guide at [http://www.thecommunityguide.org/vaccines/universally/index.html].
