IID-7.10 Data Details

Expand All

IID-7.10 Achieve and maintain an effective coverage level of 2 or more or 3 or more doses rotavirus vaccine among children by age 19 to 35 months

About the Data: National

Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.

Data Source: 
National Immunization Survey (NIS); Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases and National Center for Health Statistics (CDC/NCIRD and CDC/NCHS)
Changed Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
Yes
Measure: 
percent
Baseline (Year): 
68.6 (2012)
Target: 
80.0
Target-Setting Method: 
Maintain consistency with national programs, regulations, policies, and laws.
Target-Setting Method Justification: 
Rotavirus vaccine was first recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice in 2006. The first national coverage estimates were published in fall 2010. National Immunization Survey data from Q1 and Q2 2009 are available but have not been published. Because this vaccine is new and no catchup is possible (doses of rotavirus cannot be given after 8 months of age), 80 percent is an achievable target.
Numerator: 

Number of children aged 19 to 35 months receiving at least 2 or 3 doses of rotavirus vaccine, depending on the vaccine brand

Denominator: 

Number of children aged 19 to 35 months

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective: 
Not applicable
Questions Used to Obtain the National Baseline Data: 

    From the 2013 National Immunization Survey Provider-Immunization History Questionnaire:

    [NUMERATOR:]

    Specify month, day, and year that each vaccine was given, either by the office or another provider, and type of vaccine, as documented in the records.

Data Collection Frequency: 
Annual
Methodology Notes: 

    The National Immunization Survey (NIS) uses a quarterly, random-digit-dialed sample of telephone numbers to reach households with children aged 19–35 months in the 50 states and selected local areas and territories, followed by a mail survey sent to the children's vaccination providers to collect vaccination information. Data are weighted to represent the population of children aged 19–35 months, with adjustments for households with multiple telephone lines and mixed telephone use (landline and cellular), household nonresponse, and exclusion of households without telephone service. Beginning in 2011, surveys include landline and cellular telephone households.

    This measure tracks the proportion of children aged 19 to 35 months receiving at least 2 or 3 doses of the rotavirus vaccine. The number of rotavirus vaccine doses required differs according to manufacturer (brand). This measure does take into account the brand of vaccine used and assumes that doses with missing rotavirus
    type/brand information are a type requiring 3 doses to be up-to-date.

Trend Issues: 
In 2011, the NIS sampling frame was expanded from sampling landline phones to sampling landline and cell phones, creating a dual frame sample.

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, 2009 through 2011 data were revised to correct errors in programming, in particular the estimates by sex and country of birth. The baseline estimate for the total population and target remained the same. In 2015, the baseline year was revised from 2009 to 2012 due to expanding the sampling frame from landline phones only to a dual frame sample including landline and cell phones. The baseline statement was changed from "43.9 percent of children aged 19 to 35 months in 2009 received 2 or more, or 3 or more doses of rotavirus vaccine by age 19 to 35 months, depending on product type received" to "68.6 percent of children aged 19 to 35 months in 2012 received 2 or more, or 3 or more doses of rotavirus vaccine by age 19 to 35 months, depending on product type received." The target remains unchanged.
