About the National Immunization Survey-Flu (NIS-Flu)

The NIS-Flu combines flu vaccination responses collected from annual surveys conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) including the NIS-ChildNIS-Teen, NIS-Childhood Influenza Module (NIS-CIM), and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) for all age groups (Figure 1). NIS-Flu data are used to estimate annual flu vaccination coverage among children 6 months through 17 years and adults 18 years and older at the national level, state level, selected local levels, and in some U.S. territories. The NIS-Flu estimates are based on parent or guardian reported data (for children) and self-reported data (for adults). The 2021-2022 survey assessed the self-reported immunization status of approximately 449,985 children and adults in the United States. This sample was comprised of 291,839 adults and 158,146 children. The Texas sample included 18,593 respondents.
