The Idaho Immunization Program (IIP) and the U.S. Public Health Service are committed to reaching the Healthy People 2020 objectives for vaccinations. To measure national progress toward this goal, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducts the National Immunization Surveys (NISs) including the Child NIS and the Teen NIS. State immunization programs use the state-level data to track the progress they are making in improving immunization rates for those vaccines where the Healthy People 2020 targets have not yet been reached, and to inform program activities. NIS data are collected by interviewing households in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and selected areas for oversampling. The NIS is a list-assisted random-digit-dialing telephone survey, followed by a mailed survey to children’s immunization providers.
The NIS is conducted for the CDC by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago. If you have any questions about the National Immunization Survey, please visit the NIS website or call the NORC toll free at 1-866-999-3340.
The explanation for what vaccines are included in each series is in the footnotes of each of the graphs linked on this page.
