Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
From the 2010 National Health Interview Survey:
DURING THE PAST 12 MONTHS, has [sample child] had a flu vaccination? This vaccine is usually given in the fall and protects against influenza for the flu season.
During what month and year did [sample child] receive his or her most recent flu vaccine?
Enter year of most recent flu vaccine.
In the 2010-2011 season, the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended that all persons aged 6 months and over receive the influenza vaccine. To better assess influenza vaccination coverage (1 or more doses) for each season, we reported coverage restricted to individuals interviewed during September through June, and vaccinated during August through May, using the Kaplan-Meier survival analysis procedure. Vaccination month was imputed when the child was reported to have been vaccinated but was missing the month and/or year of vaccination.
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
In 2013, objectives IID-12.1 through 12.4 assessing seasonal influenza vaccine coverage among children were consolidated into objective IID-12.11. The age groups of the individual objectives were combined to cover children aged 6 months through 17 years. The data source was changed from the National Immunization Survey to the National Health Interview Survey. The annual time period was revised from calendar year to influenza season.
