Definition: Percentage of children in kindergarten with all required immunizations (e.g., in 2019, 94.8% of California kindergarteners had all required immunizations).
Data Source: California Dept. of Public Health, Immunization Branch, Kindergarten Data and Reports (Jun. 2019).
Footnote: The following immunizations are required: 5 doses of DTP/DTaP/DT vaccine (4 doses if at least one was given on or after the fourth birthday), 4 doses of polio vaccine (3 doses if at least one was given on or after the fourth birthday), 2 doses of MMR vaccine (given on or after the first birthday), 3 doses of hepatitis B vaccine, and 1 dose of varicella vaccine (or physician-documented varicella history or immunity). Years presented are the final year of a school year (e.g., 2018-19 is shown as 2019). The notation 95%+ indicates that at least 95% of kindergarteners had all required immunizations. The notation >n means that more than n kindergarteners had all required immunizations. The notation S refers to data that have been suppressed because fewer than 20 kindergarteners had all immunizations, or (beginning in 2017) fewer than 20 students were enrolled in kindergarten, or (beginning in 2018) data for at least one school in the district were suppressed. N/A means that data are not available.
