Pennsylvania ranked 13th best, according to the data, ahead of neighboring states New York (29th), Ohio (32nd) and New Jersey (44th). Maryland (6th) was the only bordering state that scored better.

The study looked at data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, based on key metrics such as specific immunizations received by people between six-months-old and 64-years-old.
