More and more kids are getting the health protection they need in the state of New Jersey. As the years go on, parents are realizing the value in getting their children their recommended vaccinations. According to the Kids Count Data Center, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, there were about 75 percent of 2 year old across the nation that were immunized in 2015. This was a dramatic increase from 2009, when only 48 percent of young kids were immunized.
Immunizations are critical to maintaining a child’s health, which makes a cause for celebration for the increase of immunization. Specifically in New Jersey, the rates of young children who are immunized have increased from 71 percent to 82 percent in the 2015. The state of Connecticut takes the first place title with the highest rate of immunizations for two year olds at 84 percent, while West Virginia takes last place at 65 percent.
One of the leading causes of the rise of immunizations is due to the fact New Jersey preschools require children to have immunizations if they are to attend. Receiving immunizations as a young child are key to living a healthy life and decrease/prevent the chances of contracting any illnesses in a school environment. So if you haven’t already, you should contact a medical professional to provide your children with the recommended immunizations.
