Vaccine Coverage for United States Infants at Milestone Ages: Missed Opportunities for Vaccination

Abstract

We used a claims database to assess coverage for rotavirus (RV), diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis, and pneumococcal conjugate vaccines among infants in the United States. Similar coverage was seen until 7 months of age, after which RV coverage lagged. Missed opportunities for vaccination at well-child visits were found to vary by age.
