MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2005 Jul 29;54(29):717-21.


The National Immunization Survey (NIS) provides vaccination coverage estimates for children aged 19-35 months for each of the 50 states and 28 selected urban areas. This report summarizes results from the 2004 NIS, which indicated nationwide increases in coverage with at least 1 dose of varicella vaccine (VAR), pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), and the 4:3:1, 4:3:1:3:3, and 4:3:1:3:3:1 vaccine series. These levels represent an important accomplishment by exceeding for the first time the Healthy People 2010 goal of >/=80% coverage for the 4:3:1:3:3 vaccine series.
