Program Annual Progress Assessments
The data for this objective come from the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program Management Survey, a subset of the Program Annual Progress Assessments. The VFC Management Survey is a web-based data collection tool immunization programs (immunization awardees) receiving VFC funding are required to complete and submit to CDC annually by March 1st. The survey collects aggregated data collected from site visits made to public and private providers and provides an overview of grantees’ immunization policies, VFC and AFIX (Assessment, Feedback, Incentives, and eXchange) program activities, and accountability measures. The survey responses are self-reported by immunization awardees.
All 61 immunization awardees receiving funding for VFC and AFIX activities are required to respond to VFC Management Survey annually. The questionnaire is web-based and self-reported by awardees.
The response rate is 100%. All 61 immunization awardees receiving funding for the VFC program are required to respond.
The information is provided by 61 immunization awardees receiving funding for VFC and AFIX activities. The percentage of providers receiving assessments (metric for IID-17) is based on assessment visits conducted to VFC-enrolled providers for a given immunization awardee.
