  • Reached at least 90% coverage — as calculated from CIR data — for the 4 DTaP: 3 Polio: 1 MMR: 4 Hib*: 3 Hep B: 1 Varicella: 4 PCV* (4:3:1:4:3:1:4) vaccine series, assessed by seconnd birthday, among patients ages 24 to 35 months;

* Hib and PCV requirements vary, based on age at first dose, total number of doses already received, current age, and product used.
