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:
