Mr. Nash,

Thank you for speaking with Marshall Vogt and myself this afternoon
clarifying your FOIA request to the Virginia Department of Health dated
March 8, 2019. We appreciate your interest in Virginia's immunization
coverage rates and discussing with you the various surveys we use to
analyze trends over time. As we discussed, Marshall and I were able to
describe how the Virginia Annual Immunization Survey (VAIS) is conducted
including its comparison to the School Immunization Survey and answered
your questions. We agreed you did not need more information from the
Virginia Department of Health on this request at this time however you
would explore our website in more detail to see if you had any other
questions. We're happy to discuss any questions or concerns you have in
the future. Do not hesitate to reach out to us directly (I have copied
Marshall on this email).

Thank you,
Christy
