Department of Public Instruction goal: 100 percent immunized or exempt students
Nearly 10,000 kindergarten through 12th grade students across the state are not fully immunized, according to the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. That's about 8 percent of the elementary and secondary academic population.
Less than 2 percent of students' parents opt out of vaccinations for medical, religious or philosophical reasons.
