Explore this: Vaccine exemption rates for every Washington school

UPDATE, FEB. 17, 2015:

State Department of Health officials say that more than 300 schools in the state have failed to report immunization exemption rates 2013-2014 school year as required by law. That’s far fewer than in 2011-2012, when up to a third of the 2,648 Washington schools didn’t report. The database below is based on the 2011-2012 reports.

ORIGINAL POST, FEB. 4:

Do you know how many kids at your neighborhood school aren’t vaccinated?

Use this tool to find out the overall rate and number of exemptions, as well as the type of exemptions, for any K-12 school in Washington. The drop-down menu lets you search by school name, city or ZIP code. Both public and private schools are included.

The data is for the 2011-2012 school year, which is the most recent complete data set that has been verified for accuracy by Department of Health analysts.

Washington law requires all school to report vaccination data to the Department of Health. However, about one-third of schools in Washington did not comply. According to the health department, there is no mechanism to enforce the law, and additionally, no funding is given to schools to gather and report this data.
