Michigan childhood immunization levels jumped nearly 14 percent from 2001 to 2002. With the increase the state is now sixth nationwide in terms of childhood immunizations.

In 1994, Michigan was rated last in immunizations with an average of just 61 percent of all children getting their needed shots before entering school. That set off a statewide initiative that included then first lady Michelle Engler encouraging parents to take their children in for their vaccinations.

With the boost from 2001 to 2002, 81.6 percent of the state's children have received their immunizations. The national average is 74.8 percent.

And the Department of Community Health said in a statement that the immunization levels have been helped by a statewide registry that allows the state to determine which children are in need of further vaccinations.
