Health Dept.: Most Vt. students vaccinated

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

School gets back in session in just a couple of weeks and a Health Department survey shows most Vermont students are fully vaccinated.

The survey found 87 percent of kids heading to kindergarten are vaccinated-- the same rate as last year. But health officials say the survey also shows that about 5.5 percent of kindergarten students did not get at least one of the shots because of a philosophical exemption, which is the second highest rate in the country.
