More Students Go To School Unvaccinated, Study Finds
A Scripps Howard News Service review of incomplete surveys submitted to CDC found that at least 135,000 children starting kindergarten last fall were exempt from vaccine requirements. Experts say more parents are refusing to vaccinate their children because of concerns that the vaccinations are harmful or because of the growing cost and complexity of receiving the shots.
