Immunizations Data/Statistics

Estimates for 2009 data indicate that 70 percent of older non-Hispanic Whites received the influenza vaccination, compared to only 51 percent of older African Americans and Hispanics. Disparities for pneumococcal vaccination coverage were even wider. In 2010, vaccination rates were 64 percent for non-Hispanic Whites, compared to 46 percent for African Americans and 39 percent for Hispanics.

In 2010, Asian/Pacific Islanders had more than 24 times the rate of new tuberculosis cases compared to non-Hispanic whites. Both hepatitis B and tuberculosis may be prevented with vaccinations.
