About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of surveyed enrollees in kindergarten who received 3 or more doses of polio vaccine
Number of surveyed enrollees in kindergarten during the survey school year
Data reflect the median of state vaccination coverage estimates. State estimates reflect coverage of the required number of polio vaccine doses for kindergarten entry in each state. Most states require 4 doses of DTaP for school entry, or 3 doses if the fourth dose was received on or after the fourth birthday. Estimates are obtained by combining states’ estimates and weighting the vaccine-specific coverage levels reported by states and territories to their respective birth cohorts. Data are provided for a school year and reflect vaccination status at entry into school. For example, vaccination for the 2009-10 school year reflects vaccination coverage for kindergarteners as of start of the school year in 2009. States may collect and/or report data on selective antigens depending upon school entry requirements.
