More U.S. Teens Get Recommended Vaccines
Date:8/20/2010

  • 54 percent of teenagers got one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine, an increase of about 12 percent.
  • 44 percent of girls got at lease one dose of the HPV vaccine, an increase of 7 percent.
  • 27 percent of girls got the recommended three doses of HPV vaccine, up 9 percent.
  • More than 89 percent of teens had the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine, the same as in 2008.
  • Vaccination for hepatitis B increased from about 88 percent in 2008 to near 90 percent in 2009.
  • One factor that may be dampening teen vaccination rates is that many teens don't see their doctor as often as younger children do, Rodewald said.

    "Infants have an advantage in that they have these well-defined child-care visits that gives a natural platform for vaccination, and adolescents don't make quite as many visits to the doctor," he said.

    Vaccination coverage also varied by states. For example, only Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island had more than 60 percent coverage for all three routinely administered adolescent vaccines -- Tdap, meningococcal vaccine and HPV, according to the report.

    "For every one of these vaccines there is an enormous range across the states," Rodewald said. "Some of the states are quicker out of the gate to adopt a new recommendation."

    Meningococcal vaccine coverage ranges from 20 percent in the U.S. Virgin Islands to almost 80 percent in the District of Columbia, and Tdap coverage ranges from 34 percent in the U.S. Virgin Islands to 72 percent in Wisconsin and New Hampshire.
