Term: Childhood Immunization Rates
Last Updated: 2009-02-12
In Brownell et al. (2001), this is calculated as the proportion of children who, by their first, second, and seventh birthdays, have been fully immunized against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), measles, mumps, and rubella.
In Brownell et al. (2008), rates are calculated as the proportion of children who have complete immunizations at 1, 2, 7 and 11 years of age.
