Report: Florida ranks low when it comes to vaccination
from Tampa Bay Times
Florida is the third least-vaccinated state in the country, according to an analysis by WalletHub. The personal finance website released a report Wednesday that ranked states based on school immunization reports, uninsured rates and disease outbreaks. The Sunshine State outperformed only Texas and Mississippi, which ranked 50th and 51st, respectively, in a list that includes the District of Columbia. Florida ranked low in a number of ways. The state is 50th for its influenza vaccination rate in children, 49th for the number of adults who have been vaccinated for tetanus, and 46th for overall flu vaccination coverage among adults.
