Immunizations remain the single most effective way to protect Vermonters against infectious diseases and some cancers. Diseases that vaccines have effectively prevented for years, such as measles or mumps, are re-emerging due to low vaccination rates in the U.S.
The Immunization Program reviews state and national data to assess immunization rates, identify populations at risk, and measure the impact of current initiatives.

Immunization Rate Data for Public and Private Schools
To better understand the percentage of students in a school immunized for each required vaccine, Act 157 requires each school to make “aggregate immunization rates of the student body for each required vaccine” publicly available. Immunization rates for the entire school are reported here in alphabetical order. This spreadsheet is organized by school name, but may be ordered differently (eg. by supervisory union, highest to lowest rate, etc.) by clicking on the sort button.at the top of each column.
The Vermont Department of Health collects immunization data from all Vermont public and private schools. This spreadsheet provides a picture of the immunization status of students entering kindergarten through twelfth grade.
