Fast Fact – November 16, 2018
In 2016, approximately 77 percent of all 2-year-olds in Colorado were fully immunized, a slight decrease from 78 percent of children in this age group in 2015. Overall, the share of 2-year-old Coloradans receiving their full series of vaccinations has improved since 2011 when the figure was just 71 percent. While rates in the state have improved, nearly one in every four young children is still not protected from preventable diseases including polio, mumps, measles and whooping cough.
