ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research study on the benefits from immunization during the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program era in the U.S. from 1994 to 2013. Data presented indicate the vaccine coverage rates among pre-school aged children from 1967 to 2012 and the estimated number of illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths prevented by routine childhood immunization for selected vaccine-preventable diseases among children. The limitations of the research findings are identified.
