Immunizations remain the single most effective way to protect Vermonters against infectious diseases and some cancers. Diseases that vaccines have effectively prevented for years, such as measles or mumps, are re-emerging due to low vaccination rates in the U.S.
The Immunization Program reviews state and national data to assess immunization rates, identify populations at risk, and measure the impact of current initiatives.
Immunization Rate Data for Public and Independent Schools
To better understand the percentage of students in a school immunized for each required vaccine, Act 157 requires each school to make “aggregate immunization rates of the student body for each required vaccine” publicly available. Immunization rates for the entire school are reported here in alphabetical order. This spreadsheet is organized by school name, but may be ordered differently (eg. by supervisory union, highest to lowest rate, etc.) by clicking on the sort button.at the top of each column.
The Vermont Department of Health collects immunization data from all Vermont public and independent schools. This spreadsheet provides a picture of the immunization status of students entering kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Annual School Immunization Survey: Key Data Findings for 2014-15
- During the 2014-15 school year, 87.7% of children entering kindergarten had received all required vaccines; the highest percent of fully immunized children entering kindergarten since immunization requirements were revised in 2008.
- Children whose parents cannot provide a complete vaccination record may be enrolled provisionally, and must be fully vaccinated within six months. The rate of provisionally admitted children dropped to 6.2%, the lowest level since 2008-09.
- The rate of philosophical exemptions among children entering kindergarten is 5.8%. The 2013-14 philosophic exemption rate was 5.9%, the highest rate since separate tracking of philosophical exemptions began in the 2000-01 school year.
- For all Vermont students (K-12) enrolled in public and independent schools, exemption rates were: medical 0.3%, religious 0.2% and philosophic 4.0%. The philosophic exemption in the previous two years, for which it was reported, was 3.9%. The provisional admittance rate was 2.6%, down from 4.8% in 2012-13.
- The percent of all Vermont students K-12 that met the MMR vaccination requirements to protect against measles was 96.8%. The MMR vaccination rates for public and independent schools were 97.3% and 92.3%, respectively.
