1. National Notifiable Infectious Diseases and Conditions, 2017. CDC (Note: these numbers do not always agree with other official government counts of disease.)
2. FIGURE. Estimated percentage of kindergartners with documented up-to-date vaccination for measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR)*; exempt from one or more vaccines†,§; and not up to date with MMR and not exempt¶ — selected states and District of Columbia,** 2017–18 school year
Note: This is a corrected chart from CDC’s October 12, 2018 MMWR. Maine has the highest coverage for the MMR vaccine of all 26 states (plus District of Columbia). Furthermore, the lighter blue color represents children who are neither up to date on MMR, nor have an exemption. While most states average several per cent of children in this category, Maine has virtually none. That is the proof that despite apparently high exemption rates, we have better MMR vaccination rates than most states.
Erratum Vol. 67, No. 40 In the report “Vaccination Coverage for Selected Vaccines and Exemption Rates Among Children in Kindergarten — United States, 2017–18 School Year,” on page 1121, an incorrect figure was published. The corrected figure follows.
