Children’s vaccine records are private. You wouldn’t know if a child has AIDS because of HIPAA laws, or even something extremely contagious like mono, but you’re worried about a couple of childhood diseases? Just stop it with the madness, and leave the vaccine discussions at home where they belong. Joy 4 weeks ago4 weeks ago It appears not all schools are listed. There are many small schools within 30 miles of my house that I can’t find data for. Is this because they are such small schools? My son will be going to a school that has under 100 students, and a class for K under 10, I feel I should have the ability to access this same information. Clayton Moore 4 weeks ago4 weeks ago Thank you for the fine information. From the recent, well researched book Fantasyland by Kurt Andersen, page 379 examined anti vaccine hysteria. “A population’s herd immunity starts to collapse and permit infectious epidemics when as few as six (6) percent forego immunization.” Nona Loftis 4 weeks ago4 weeks ago I've looked up the school where I teach and the percent of fully vaccinated kindergarteners is above 94%. I looked up quite a few schools in and out of San Diego County and found they have about the same and some with higher percentage fully vaccinated.

I looked up quite a few schools in and out of San Diego County and found they have about the same and some with higher percentage fully vaccinated. The sample school used appears to be non-typical which gives the impression that the percentage for schools is that low. When a parent begins to enroll in TK or Kindergarten, they are given detailed information on the required vaccines. Bob Capriles 4 weeks ago4 weeks ago This data appear to only be elementary or perhaps elementary and middle schools. Is there data available for high schools? Replies Daniel J. Willis 4 weeks ago4 weeks ago The data is vaccination rates for incoming kindergarteners so it only includes K-5 and K-8 schools. There are requirements for incoming 7th graders as well but that data hasn’t been released for 2018-19 yet, and it’s a much smaller number of required shots. Eleanor Sheffield 4 weeks ago4 weeks ago Stunning. Flagrant abuse by parents–and school administrators–of medical exemptions. Their extensive parent handbook doesn’t have a word about state-required vaccines, although it has plenty of information about dress code, lice, attendance, and why students shouldn’t use media (may I suggest the CDC website as an educational tool?) This school shows exactly why SB 276 is needed in California.
