Oregon Immunization Rates Making Heads and Tails of Immunization Measures
We use immunizations as a building block for preventive care, yet how do we measure our success or identify challenges? Three good methods are available for measuring rates in Oregon, with respective roles and caveats:
- Oregon countywide population-based rates from ALERT;
- National population-based survey rates from the National Immunization Survey (NIS); and
- Oregon clinic-specific rates from ALERT.
Immunization rates for two-year-olds in Oregon.
Immunization rates for adolescents age 13 to 17.
New data show Oregon's vaccine exemption rate dropped 17 percent as fewer families sought nonmedical exemptions.
