Duff Statement on New Vaccination Data

Today, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) released the following statement in response to the release of updated school immunization data.

“I am pleased the request to block the release of school-by-school vaccination data was denied and now the public can see the facts,” said Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk). “This data is critical to the public health of Connecticut’s children and will be valuable to informing the state’s policy makers on any steps we may need to take. I am concerned with some of the low immunization rates at certain Connecticut public schools. I will continue to review the data, work with public health officials, and determine what steps the state needs to take to protect our children such as removing religious exemptions.”
