Students in the Laguna Beach Unified School District have some of the lowest vaccination rates in Orange County, says a state report.
Just more than 2 in 10 students in the district have failed to get vaccinated, according to data analyzed by the Orange County Health Care Agency.
The yearly assessment by the California Immunization Branch looks at kindergarten classes and reports immunization compliance.
In 2007, the county reached an historic high, 93% compliance. The goal for the state is 95%.
The most recent assessment, from 2010, reveals that countywide immunization coverage has dropped to 89%.
FOR THE RECORD:
[This corrects the percentage of countywide immunization coverage.]
However, when the Orange County Health Care Agency looked at the individual data at districts, it painted a much different picture.
