Influenza Vaccination Coverage Among People With High-Risk Conditions in the U.S.During annual influenza epidemics, rates of serious illness and death are higher among those who have medical conditions, such as pulmonary disease, diabetes, or heart disease, which place them at increased risk of influenza complications. Annual influenza vaccination was recommended for people with high-risk conditions as early as 1960.
Impact of Health Insurance Status on Vaccination Coverage Among Adult PopulationsUnderinsurance is a barrier to vaccination among children.

Human Papillomavirus Vaccine Initiation and Awareness: U.S. Young Men in the 2010 National Health Interview SurveyIn 2009, the quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine was licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in men/boys aged 9–26 years.

H1N1 and Seasonal Influenza Vaccination of U.S. Healthcare Personnel, 2010Seasonal influenza vaccination routinely has been recommended for healthcare personnel (HCP) since 1984. The influenza A (H1N1) 2009 monovalent vaccine (H1N1 vaccine) became available in the U.S. in October 2009.

The first doses of influenza A (H1N1) 2009 monovalent vaccine (2009 H1N1 vaccine) became available in the U.S. in early October 2009. Because people with asthma are at increased risk of complications from influenza, people with asthma were included among the initial prioritized groups.
Herpes Zoster Vaccination Among Adults Aged 60 Years and Older, in the U.S., 2008Shingles (herpes zoster [HZ]) is a localized, generally painful and debilitating disease that occurs most frequently among older adults. It is caused by reactivation of varicella-zoster virus. HZ causes substantial morbidity, especially among older adults. The vaccine to prevent HZ was approved by Food and Drug Administration and recommended by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices for people aged ≥60 years in 2006 (these recommendations were published in 2008).
