Risk and Reach

Immunizations

In Minnesota, 37 percent of 2-year-old children (age 24 through 35 months) were not up to date on the recommended childhood immunizations in 2013. Immunizations are important, particularly in light of recent increases in outbreaks of preventable communicable disease, such as measles. Outbreaks of this kind can be prevented by “herd” immunity. Lack of immunizations is also an indicator of irregular medical care.
