Records Show Over Half the Kids at Some Colorado Schools Aren’t Vaccinated
If you’ve been following the effort at Colorado’s Capitol to make it more difficult for parents to opt their kids out of school immunization requirements, you’re likely aware that the state has some of the lowest vaccination rates in the nation. But how low is low? A Colorado Times Recorder records request to the Tri-County Health Department, which covers Douglas, Adams, and Arapahoe Counties, revealed that several schools in the area had MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccination rates that fall well below 50 percent for kindergartners during the 2018-2019 school year.
