Methodology Notes

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.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 14-22h, which was intended to assess influenza vaccination of children aged 6 to 23 months. The objective was developmental during Healthy People 2010. It became measurable as of the Healthy People 2020 launch and was revised to include four Healthy People 2020 objectives: IID-12.1 (children aged 6 years to 23 months), IID-12.2 (children aged 2 to 4 years), IID-12.3 (children aged 5 to 12 years), and IID-12.4 (children aged 13 to 17 years).

Revision History

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch

In 2014, 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.
