  1. a Results are based on data weighted to reflect actual distribution of self-reported pneumonia vaccination status among all eligible study subjects in each race-ethnicity × gender group.
  2. b High Risk = Reported one or more of the following health conditions: diabetes, heart problem, lung/breathing problem (e.g., asthma, COPD), or cancer.
  3. c Pneumococcal vaccination date found in Health Plan Medical Record (HPMR) or written note in patient chart about date individual had the vaccination outside the Health Plan.
  4. d For people with HPMR documentation of pneumococcal vaccination only.
