We have a four month old and this one hits close to home, quite literally, as there are several ongoing outbreaks in our town. In Colorado, the vaccination rate is the lowest in the nation (81.7% compared to the 2013 national kindergarten average of 94.7 for the MMR vaccine). Interested in seeing a map of all the vaccine preventable outbreaks worldwide? Look no further.
I'm worried about the outbreaks in town. Did everyone get their shots?
Yeah, of course.
I'm good. The school makes me get them.
I'll go tomorrow.
Oh no, It's okay, I don't ever get sick.
