Oklahoma requires kindergarteners to be immunized against 10 diseases unless parents choose an exemption on medical, religious or personal grounds.

In Oklahoma’s 2017-18 kindergarten immunization survey, an estimated 89.9% of kindergarteners with immunization records were up to date for all required vaccines. The rate of exemptions was 2.2%, matching the national median.

But there are individual schools and areas with relatively high exemption rates and low vaccination rates. This interactive allows you to find the 2017-18 rates for kindergarteners at each Oklahoma school that voluntarily reported data.

Note: Oklahoma kindergarteners are required to be vaccinated for 10 diseases, unless they receive exemptions: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, polio, hepatitis A and hepatitis B.

To prevent the spread of diseases, health officials say certain percentages of immunity in a population should be achieved. Each disease has its own “herd immunity” rate – from 92% to 95% for measles, for example. The percentages below refer to kindergarteners who are up to date on all required vaccines – that is, for multiple diseases – so cannot be compared to a single disease’s “herd immunity” rate.
