The immunization compliance data reported below was taken from the District of Columbia Immunization Information System (DOCIIS). It reflects the total number of students enrolled in public (DCPS), public charter, private, and parochial schools, from preschool to 12th grade who are compliant with the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. Students in all District of Columbia schools are required to provide certification of immunization up to 26 years of age. Immunization compliance is a composite of vaccination compliance and exemptions – medical and religious. Compliance is determined by the total number of enrolled students who have received all vaccine doses by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended age and time interval. Students who are non-compliant represent students who are overdue for vaccination.
What your school’s MMR compliance rate means:
It reflects your risk of an outbreak.The target herd immunity rate for MMR is 95%.
- Compliance: a child who is vaccinated according to local law and/or has a current, approved medical or religious exemption on file.
- Non-Compliance: a child who is not vaccinated according to local law and/or does not have an exemption on file, or lacks appropriate documentation.
- Exemption: a child with a signed certificate of exemption or religious beliefs.
- Herd or Community Immunity: a situation in which a sufficient proportion of a population is immune to an infectious disease (through vaccination and/or prior illness) to make its spread from person to person unlikely.
