Figures released today present information on the vaccination of children against a number of diseases, in England, during 2015-16.
NHS Digital must be quoted as the source of these figures
Regional data are available within this report
The NHS Digital annual report NHS Immunisation Statistics, England, 2015-16 includes coverage statistics on routine childhood vaccinations, which are offered to all children up to the age of five.2
The statistics in this report are derived from data collected by Public Health England, and are used to inform government policy on immunisation and to assess the delivery of different immunisations nationally.
The statistics also support initiatives such as national and regional catch-up programmes for specific immunisations.
For the first time, this year's report is accompanied by an interactive dashboard, which provides statistics at national, regional, and local levels for routine childhood vaccinations.
These routine vaccinations include DTaP/IPV/Hib (the "5-in-1" vaccine), the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), and the children's flu vaccine.
This year's report also includes, for the first time, experimental statistics3 on the rotavirus vaccine at 12 months.4
Figures for all of the vaccinations are reported as a proportion of the eligible population.
