AUGUSTA – The Maine CDC has updated the estimated COVID-19 vaccination rate for students in each school administrative unit.
With the data release, the Maine CDC continues to solicit all eligible Maine individuals to receive the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The Maine Department of Health and Human Services and the Maine Department of Education approved the COVID-19 Immunization Rate for Adolescents Ages 12-18 from the SAU as part of a comprehensive plan to support vaccination of school staff and students against COVID-19 estimated.
“This data will provide information to school principals to make the best decisions for their communities and help parents and students better understand vaccination rates in their areas,” said DHHS Commissioner Jeanne Lambrew. “In conjunction with our work to help schools offer vaccination clinics and promote the benefits of these safe and effective vaccines, we can contain the spread of COVID-19 by increasing vaccination rates in schools across Maine.”
“Families and school communities should work together to ensure access to the COVID-19 vaccine for anyone lucky enough to be eligible,” said DOE Commissioner Pender Makin. “Our team at the Maine Department of Education will continue to provide information, resources, and support for your efforts.”
Estimated rates are based on the number of adolescents vaccinated in each zip code reported to the Maine CDC in individuals of all ages who received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The number of adolescents in each SAU is based on Maine DOE data on the number of adolescents ages 12-18 that the SAU was financially responsible for as of June 2021.
The youth vaccination rates are updated approximately every two weeks. These are only estimates given the different data sources and their limitations.
