  • Eligible adolescents are those aged 12 to 13 years on visit date; definition of completion is adjusted for national vaccine schedule recommendations on visit date (eg, 3 doses required to be considered complete for visits occurring before December 16, 2016). —, not applicable.

  • a Percentage point change refers to increase or decrease in percentage of adolescents fulfilling criteria (eg, from 61.1% completing series by the 13th birthday to 61.1% + 4.7%, a total of 65.8%, postintervention).

  • b Reference refers to the value against which other categories of that variable are compared. For example, the preintervention period is the reference value for the study period. Percentage point changes estimate the change in the intervention and postintervention periods compared with the preintervention period.
