Immunizations

Vaccinations help protect people from the risk of disease, especially infants who are too young to be vaccinated, and children and adults whose immune systems are weaker. Vermont's Immunization Program works with families, health care providers and community partners to make sure children and adults are protected against vaccine-preventable diseases by increasing immunization coverage levels.

Congratulations to the 25 Vermont primary care practices with high immunization coverage in 2018!

Twenty-five primary care practices in Vermont are being recognized by the Vermont Department of Health for high child or teen immunization rates in 2018. To receive recognition, at least 90 percent of child patients must be up to date with their immunizations for 11 vaccine-preventable diseases including measles, mumps and whooping cough. At least 80 percent of teen patients must be vaccinated to prevent meningitis and cancers caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). To be eligible for consideration, providers must have at least 20 teen or child-age patients. The full list of practices receiving recognition is below.

This page provides you with the information you need to vaccinate with confidence.

The School Entry Immunization Rule sets immunization requirements for entry at public or independent kindergartens, elementary and secondary schools.

As an adult, it is important to stay up to date with vaccinations to reduce your risk of preventable illness.

If you plan to travel outside the country, you may need immunizations to protect yourself against diseases that aren’t common in the United States.

Very high immunization coverage is necessary to prevent the spread of many vaccine preventable diseases.

Vaccination coverage, or the percent of people who have received particular vaccines, is measured at national, state and local levels.
