Immunization Coverage and Exemption Rates in Niagara Schools

This dataset contains information about immunization coverage rates and exemption rates for Niagara schools (both privately and publicly funded schools). Data is available for measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) immunization, as well as diphtheria, tetanus and polio. Please note that the final doses for measles, mumps, rubella and polio immunizations occur between the ages of 4 and 6, while diphtheria and tetanus require an additional dose 10 years after the dose between the ages of 4 and 6. Coverage rates are defined as the percent of all students enrolled at the school who did not receive any kind of exemption from immunization. Exemption rates are defined as the percent of all students enrolled at the school who were exempt from receiving the immunization due to philosophical reasons.
