For the general community, high childhood immunization rates prevent the resurgence of many infectious diseases, such as polio, that have been virtually eradicated from most developed countries (CDC, 1999). The general clinical consensus is that if immunization practices ceased, most infectious and contagious diseases currently prevented by vaccinations would reemerge as lethal health threats. Potential for exposure to infectious disease is even greater with the increase in international travel. By ensuring proper immunization of adolescents, organizations can help contain the transmission of these diseases and help protect the general population. This measure assesses the percentage of adolescents who had each of the following immunizations by their 13th birthday:

  • One dose of meningococcal vaccine AND
  • One tetanus, diphtheria toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine (Tdap) OR
  • One tetanus, diphtheria toxoids vaccine (Td)
