Immunizations in Arizona
Every year, over 102,000 children
are born in Arizona, and all must be immunized against childhood
diseases to protect their health and future. Our 2010 goal is to have at least 90% of all children immunized at the standard 4:3:1:3:3 coverage level (4 or more doses of DTaP; 3 or more doses of IPV; one or more dose of MMR; 3 or more doses of Hib; 3 or more doses of Hep B vaccine and 1 dose of Varicella vaccine) by 2 years of age. As of September 2010 the U.S. immunization rate for 4:3:1:3:3:1 is 70%. Arizona's rate is 70%.

Immunizations (APAI) and the Southern Arizona Immunization Coalition (SAIC).
The program also monitors immunization levels of Arizona's children attending
