Maine's best-in-the-nation child immunization rates

A recent U.S. CDC report shows Maine’s vaccination rates for 19-35-month olds are the best in the nation

Here is a statement from Maine CDC Director and Chief Operating Officer Kenneth Albert on the recent U.S. CDC report that shows Maine’s vaccination rates for 19-35-month olds are the best in the nation:

These results are a cause for celebration and reflect an effective partnership that has been built across the State to address this important health issue. Our success can be attributed to the hard work of clinicians, partners, educators and funders who have collectively made the vaccination of Maine’s children a public health priority.

We’re proud of what has been accomplished and look forward to working with our partners to build upon this success in the coming year.

I have also attached some data in the form of PowerPoint slides for your information.

Thank you
