Oregon Immunization Surveillance and Evaluation
data chart
A variety of surveillance and evaluation activities are conducted by the Oregon Immunization Program to help us focus on our goal to protect Oregonians from vaccine-preventable diseases.

 


Oregon Immunization Rates
Making Heads and Tails of Immunization Measures

We use immunizations as a building block for preventive care, yet how do we measure our success or identify challenges? Three good methods are available for measuring rates in Oregon, with respective roles and caveats:

  • Oregon countywide population-based rates from ALERT;
  • National population-based survey rates from the National Immunization Survey (NIS); and
  • Oregon clinic-specific rates from ALERT.
