Atlanta-area school districts fail to enforce vaccination requirements

While most schools in the Atlanta area meet the Georgia state standard for vaccination requirements, Alison Young of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution found that at least 99 schools' kindergartners
and 81 schools' sixth-graders failed to meet that standard during the 2007-2008 school year
, with many of the schools in Atlanta's Fulton County. Before Young's investigation, the Fulton County health department, was unaware of the problem, and has since vowed to investigate further.
