In 2017 just 72 percent of Colorado’s 2-year-olds were fully immunized, falling behind the national average that year. These data indicate that one out of every four young children in Colorado is still not protected from preventable diseases including polio, mumps, measles and whooping cough. To find out how our state’s immunization rate for young children has changed over the last decade, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
