Immunization Provider Honor Roll

Criteria for Honor Roll in 2018: An honor roll provider is a NYC public or private Vaccines for Children Program (VFC)-enrolled provider who has received an Assessment, Feedback, Incentive, and eXchange (AFIX) visit and has reached the following criteria by the time of the original visit or by the time of follow-up:

  • has at least 25 children in either the 24–35 month-old cohort, or the 13–17 year-old cohort;
  • 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 2nd birthday, among patients aged 24–35 months;
  • reached at least 60% coverage — as calculated from CIR data — for the 1 Tdap: 1 MCV: 2/3 HPV completion (1:1:2/3) series among 13–17 year olds;
  • has a VFC Doses Administered Report (DAR) of at least 90%; and
  • is in good-standing with the VFC program requirements

Coverage is measured when the Provider Quality Assurance (PQA) Unit conducts site visits to evaluate VFC compliance and immunization practices. All assessments are currently based on Citywide Immunization Registry (CIR) data. Also assessed during a site visit are 2 doses of Hep A coverage for the childhood cohort.

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

DOHMH is pleased to honor the following providers:
