Supplementary notes

All data are crude estimates. Data are based on household interviews of a sample of the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Respondents were asked if they received a flu vaccination during the past 12 months. Questions do not indicate whether the vaccination was a child’s first or second dose. From August 2010 through 2011, questions were modified to reflect that the seasonal influenza vaccine included protection for the 2009 pandemic H1N1 virus. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommendations regarding who should receive an influenza vaccination have changed over the years, and changes in coverage estimates may reflect changes in recommendations (see Technical Notes for details). The analyses exclude persons with unknown influenza vaccination status.
Figures from before 2006 were taken from a previous report and can be found here on page 25.
