This article presents news from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In this study the CDC examined the national, state and local vaccination coverage of American children aged 19-35 months during 2006. The report found that vaccination numbers were near or at recommended levels but that increases in diptheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) and varicella (VAR) vaccinations are needed to reach the 2010 vaccination target goal. Disparities in vaccinations were found between poor children and wealthier children, but not between races.
