Supplement 2: Assessment of Vaccination Coverage

Find another Issue

Vaccinations are one of the foundations of public health. This July/August 2011 supplemental issue of PHR highlights vaccination surveillance efforts in the U.S. and abroad. Beginning with a historical overview of immunization in the U.S., which dates back to before the Revolutionary War, an article by guest editor Dr. Philip J. Smith of CDC and contributing editors Drs. David Wood and Paul M. Darden lays the foundation for contemporary vaccination assessment efforts. In his special commentary, Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. Howard K. Koh discusses the recently updated National Vaccine Plan and outlines the Plan’s five goals, which together provide a framework for national action to guide and coordinate vaccine and immunization efforts for the coming decade.

Several articles in this supplement discuss parental vaccine concerns and refusals/delays and their impact on child immunization status and pediatricians’ practices. Other articles cover a spectrum of vaccination topics, including measles underimmunization in Swiss children, extra-immunization and fragmentation of care, and the impact of the Vaccines for Children Program on vaccination coverage of eligible children in the U.S. Several articles conclude that better education and more stringent child care and school-entry requirements regarding vaccinations could help boost vaccination coverage in the U.S. and abroad.
