Description:Knowing the vaccination rates in your community is important. Unvaccinated people tend to cluster and put communities at risk for outbreaks of diseases like measles.
Many states are making vaccination data available online so you can see local vaccine coverage and vaccine exemption data.
To find out if your state makes this information available, check with your state health department or visit: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schoolvaxview-states/
