TVFC Flu Statistics and Resources
All TVFC-enrolled facilities receive a monthly influenza dashboard from the Immunization Unit, which reports current flu vaccine coverage rates and utilization rates.
Coverage rates are calculated by collecting the number of flu doses that were administered at the site in the last month, divided by the number of TVFC-eligible children that were reported in the patient profile section of the re-enrollment form for each TVFC-enrolled facility.
Utilization rates are calculated by collecting the number of flu doses that were administered at the site in the last month, divided by the number of flu doses that were reserved for the site’s TVFC patient population during the flu pre-book period, in January. Once open ordering begins, Utilization Rates will be calculated by doses administered/ (Pre-booked + Open Ordered).
In addition, the dashboard contains information on Texas influenza outbreaks, Texas pediatric influenza deaths, the rates for each county and the State of Texas using data from the Provider-reported population estimate from the 2023 Re-Enrollment Survey and ranks for each clinic and county on coverage and utilization rates.
It is important that doses administered data is current in VAOS to ensure a reliable utilization rate estimate.
