Senator Abrams Releases Statement After Department of Public Health Releases Latest School Immunization Data

Today, State Senator Mary Daugherty Abrams (D- Meriden, Middlefield, Rockfall, Middletown, Cheshire) released the following statement after the state Department of Public Health released new data on school immunization data showing a rise in use of non-medical exemptions to immunization:

“The 2018-2019 school immunization data released by the Department of Public Health is alarming. An increase of 31.1 percent in the number of schools that fell below kindergarten MMR vaccination guidelines cannot be ignored. As the Senate Chair of the Public Health Committee it is our responsibility to act to protect the citizens in our state from potentially deadly diseases, particularly those with compromised immune systems. I will continue to consult with my fellow legislators on the Public Health Committee in coming months to determine how best to address this growing public health concern.”
