Increasing Adult Vaccination Rates What Works
 
What are the Healthy People 2010 Objectives for adult immunization?

Healthy People 2010 Objectives:
These objectives, prepared by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, were published in January 2000. The 2010 objectives call for increasing hepatitis B vaccine coverage among high-risk groups and increasing vaccine coverage among adults who are vaccinated annually against influenza and ever vaccinated against pneumococcal disease. The objectives state:

Increase hepatitis B vaccine coverage among high-risk groups. (Healthy People 2010 Objectives, Immunization and Infectious Diseases, Objective 14-28.)

†Data on institutionalized population age adjusted to the year 2000 nursing home population. National Nursing Home Survey estimates include a significant number of residents who have an unknown vaccination status. See Tracking Healthy People 2010 for further discussion of the data issues.

Data sources: National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), CDC, NCHS-noninstitutionalized populations; National Nursing Home Survey (NNHS), CDC, NCHS-institutionalized populations.
