According to a new report from the CDC, the number of children who are not getting vaccinated is rising. The report shows that the percentage of 2-year-olds born in 2011 and who were not vaccinated was about .9% while the percentage rose to 1.3% for those born in 2015.
Additionally, the number of children who are getting vaccination exemptions is rising, up to 2.2.% according to the CDC.
