The Facts

Vaccines protect against may diseases that used to commonly cause severe illness and death. We need to keep vaccination rates high in Idaho so that we don’t see the return of diseases like polio, diphtheria, measles, mumps, rubella and others.

We are on the right track, but we can do better.



- of Idaho children between  19-35 months old get the primary 7 vaccination series. Idaho’s childhood vaccination coverage for the primary 7 series is above the national average of 70.7%


- Idaho's national rank for primary 7 vaccines vaccination coverage for children ages 19-35 months


Idaho has seen increases in vaccination coverage for Rotavirus & Hepatitis A



Rotavirus vaccination coverage increased from 74.5% in 2015 to 80.2% in 2016

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A virus vaccination coverage significantly increased to 67.1% in 2016 from 58.8% in 2015


We are excited to share that for the first time, Idaho not only reached, but exceeded CDC Healthy People 2020 goals for both Rotavirus and diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTaP) vaccine coverage rates.

Most Idaho teens are getting the first dose of HPV vaccine



- percentage of Idaho teens aged 13-17 received at least one dose of HPV vaccine according to the 2016 Teen National Immunization Survey


Although most Idaho adolescents are getting their first dose of HPV vaccine, there continues to be many who are not completing the vaccination series. There is still work to be done.

While the percentage of teenage girls in Idaho receiving at least one dose of HPV vaccine only slightly increased between 2015 and 2016, we are encouraged to see that there was a 10% increase in the number of teenage boys receiving at least one dose of the HPV vaccine.

In 2015 44.2% of Idaho teenage boys had received at least one dose of HPV vaccine. According to the same survey, that percentage increased to 54.7% in 2016.
