CDC Immunization Coverage Kindergarten Student 2011 to 2014

$79 / year

Vaccinations are one of the best ways to put an end to the serious effects of certain diseases. Vaccination helps to check the occurrence of epidemics as well as control the mortality and morbidity rates. Vaccination in the absence of prevalence of any disease is necessary that it will avoid the reoccurrence of the disease and save future generations from the agony of the deadly disease. The dataset carries vaccination statistics of kindergarten students.

Complexity

State and local jurisdictions require children to be vaccinated before starting school to maintain high vaccination coverage and protect school children from vaccine-preventable diseases. State vaccination requirements, which include school vaccination and exemption laws and health department regulations, permit medical exemptions for students with a medical contraindication to receiving a vaccine or vaccine component and may allow nonmedical exemptions for religious reasons or philosophic beliefs. To monitor state and national vaccination coverage and exemption levels among children attending kindergarten, CDC analyzes school vaccination data collected by federally funded state, local, and territorial immunization programs. Vaccination coverage was for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis vaccine (DTaP) and 2 doses of varicella. Appropriate school vaccination coverage assessments can help immunization programs identify clusters of low coverage and develop partnerships with schools and communities to ensure that children are protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. Federally funded immunization programs work with health departments, education departments, school nurses, or other school personnel to assess the vaccination and exemption status (as defined by state and local school vaccination requirements) of children enrolled in public and private kindergartens. Data from the assessments were aggregated by state or area and sent to CDC. Data is presented as point estimate (%) ± 95% confidence interval. Estimate=NA (Not Available) if the unweighted sample size for the denominator was 0.588.
