Back to school without vaccines? Growing concern in some states
from NBC News
As kids across the country head back to school, a growing number may walk through the doors without first getting vaccines. All 50 states require vaccinations for children going to public school, but nearly every state allows exemptions. In Vermont, Michigan, Idaho and Oregon more than 5 percent of kindergartners had non-medical exemptions last year, according to the CDC, well above the national average of 1.8 percent. Nationally, rates have been declining for many childhood vaccines.
