Arizona showed poorly in a recent study about vaccination rates across the country. Vaccinations have become a hot topic across the country with the re-emergence of measles – a disease that was thought to have been eradicated by vaccinations. With vaccines being essential for preventing disease outbreaks, especially as we enter the flu season, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2019’s States that Vaccinate the Most.
In order to find out which states vaccinate most, WalletHub analyzed the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 18 key metrics, ranging from share of vaccinated children to share of people without health insurance to presence of reported measles outbreaks.
Vaccinations in Arizona (1=Best; 25=Avg.)
- 41st – Influenza Vaccination Rate in Children Aged 6 Months to 17 Years Old
- 28th – Share of Teenagers aged 13-17 Years Old with Up-To-Date HPV Vaccination
- 18th – Share of Teenagers aged 13-17 Years Old with Men ACWY Vaccination
