Colorado continues to rank at the bottom of immunization coverage rates in the United States. For the 2018-2019 school year, Colorado’s kindergarten coverage rate for the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine was 87.4%, a 1.3% decrease from the previous year when Colorado ranked as the worst state in the nation. Per Executive Order B 2019 006 (June 12, 2019) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s strategic plan, Colorado is perusing initiatives in an effort to reverse the downward trend.
