New adult vaccination coverage estimates from the 2009 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) are now available online at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/stats-surv/nhis/2009-nhis.htm. Estimates of vaccination coverage for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, herpes zoster (shingles), human papillomavirus, influenza (2008-09 season), pneumococcal disease, and tetanus with and without pertussis are presented overall and by selected characteristics (i.e., age, vaccination target group status, and race/ethnicity).
These estimates update the 2008 estimates published in July 2009.1 NHIS is a national household survey of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population in the United States.
