Texas Vaccination Rank Soars! Texas jumped from 22nd to 12th nationwide in the immunization rate of infants. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports Texas’ childhood immunization rate increased from 77.3 percent in 2007 to 77.8 percent in 2008. The national average in 2008 was 76.1.
The 2008 rate is an all-time high for Texas and continues an overall upward trend since 2002 when the rate was 65 percent, DSHS officials said. The CDC's annual National Immunization Survey measures vaccination coverage among children 19 months through 35 months of age.
