Patients assessed and given pneumonia vaccination


This measures the percentage of patients who are assessed by their health care providers and given a pneumonia vaccine, which can reduce a person's risk of catching pneumonia, a serious and dangerous lung infection. Flu vaccination also is an effective way to reduce your risk of catching pneumonia because influenza may sometimes worsen and become pneumonia. Young children and adults 65 and older are at highest risk for pneumonia.

January 2012 - September 2012 data

For the above graph: Higher ↑ performance is better.

Why is there only one graph?

Because this is a new measure, only a limited amount of data is available. As past data on this measure becomes available, we will add another graph showing our performance over time.
