Two-year-old immunization coverage in Fraser Health
At Fraser Health we take immunizations very seriously and monitor the immunization coverage rates in our communities on a frequent basis. Infants are one of the most vulnerable groups when it comes to vaccine preventable diseases as they can become seriously ill if not protected from these infections. That’s why Fraser Health focuses on ensuring that every 2-year old in our region is up-to-date on their immunizations. Immunizations help provide the best start to life.
By immunizing infants we are also protecting individuals who cannot be immunized due to medical reasons as well as protecting the rest of our community from the spread of outbreaks. By maintaining high immunization coverage rates in the early years we are ensuring entire neighbourhoods, schools and cities are as healthy as possible.
Immunization is everyone’s responsibility and we wanted to share how our region is doing.
There are two sets of maps showing immunization rates for fiscal year 2022/23. The first set is for 2-year-olds with immunizations fully up-to-date (i.e. received all of their 2, 4, 6, 12 and 18-month-old vaccines as per the BC Routine Immunization Schedule for Infants & Children). The second set is for 2-year-olds with immunizations up-to-date except for the booster at 18 months.
Each map shows municipalities divided into neighbourhood areas. Each neighbourhood is assigned a colour that corresponds to the percentage of 2-year-olds who were up-to-date on all of their immunizations (or up-to-date except for the booster at 18 months). While some neighbourhoods have coverage rates above 85 per cent, we need a coverage rate of over 95 per cent to best help protect the rest of the community from disease.
In addition to these maps, we have created one-page summaries for each of our municipalities to provide more in-depth information on our immunization coverage rates. In these summaries you will find information by disease specific vaccine, where children are falling behind and school based immunization coverage rates.
