Immunization Rates by State


The American Academy of Pediatrics has recently developed a web-based, interactive map that highlights childhood vaccination rates for vaccine preventable diseases by state as well as whether a state’s laws provide for non-medical exemptions to mandatory vaccination (i.e. whether the state provides for religious and/or philosophical exemptions). Further, this map details how each state’s current childhood vaccination rate compares to the national rates of childhood vaccination.


For example, by choosing a particular state (e.g. Virginia) on the interactive map, you can learn that the vaccination rate for influenza in children 6 months to 17 years of age in Virginia is 62.4%, compared to the national vaccination rate of 59.3%. Also, you can find that in addition to medical exemptions to mandatory vaccination, Virginia law provides for a religious exemption but does not provide for a philosophical exemption to mandatory childhood vaccination. Finally, the website provides other data regarding outbreaks of measles, mumps and whooping cough by year and state. Without a doubt, this resource has a plethora of important and useful information and can be accessed at https://immunizations.aap.org/.
