MMWR - Effects of COVID-19 on Routine Pediatric Vaccination

May 11, 2020 | Kimberly Sharpe-Scott

On May 8, the CDC released an MMWR report entitled Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Routine Pediatric Vaccine Ordering and Administration – United States, 2020.

Data from two CDC systems – the Vaccines for Children Program (VFC) provider ordering data and the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) vaccine administration data – show decreases in ordering and administering of childhood vaccines during the first four months of 2020. These findings highlight that as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it is critical to communicate with parents and community healthcare providers about the ongoing importance of timely vaccination for children.

Local health departments are encouraged to use and share CDC’s parent-friendly immunization schedules for children 0-6 years old available in English and Spanish, as well as information about CDC’s catch-up immunization schedule. To further share timely messaging about the importance of immunizations, access the below sample social media resources:
