Mississippi at the Top For Childhood Vaccines

JACKSON, Miss– The Center For Disease Control says Mississippi is number one in the nation for kindergarten kids having their vaccines. 

That routine of taking the kids to get their vaccines is paying off for Mississippi. The Magnolia State ranks number one in the nation for having updated vaccinations.

99.7% of this year’s kindergarten kids were up to date on their vaccine requirements before starting school.

Vaccines for Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Hepatitis B, Chickenpox, Polio, Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis are all required for school admission in Mississippi, and boosters are required for maintenance.

You can find the CDC study here.

The state department of health has the immunization requirements on their website.
