National vaccine coverage of children remains high

August 31, 2015

Nationwide vaccination of children aged 19 to 35 months remained high for almost all recommended vaccinations between 2013 and 2014, according to a report in MMWR.

“Collaborative efforts from a number of key stakeholders involving federal, state, and local governments, clinicians, parents and community organizations, have allowed us to achieve such high vaccination rates among children,” Anne Schuchat, MD, assistant surgeon general, said at a news conference. “Achieving these high levels has greatly reduced infectious diseases, like polio and bacterial meningitis that once routinely killed or harmed many infants and children.”
