Arizona Immunization Program


Every year, over 85,000 children are born in Arizona, and all must be immunized against childhood diseases to protect their health and future. Our 2020 goal is to have at least 90% of all children immunized with 4 doses of DTaP; 3 doses of IPV; one 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 2013 the U.S. immunization rate for 4:3:1:3:3:1 is 72%. Arizona's rate is 69%.
