There's been quite an uproar this year over the supposed safety risks presented by vaccines and concerns that a number of parents are avoiding the jab to protect their children. But the CDC--which has raised its own concerns on the subject--says that the vast majority of parents are still doing the right thing and getting the whole list of vaccinations recommended for their children. Last year fewer than one percent of all children received no vaccinations and about 80 percent got all of them. And rates for long-established vaccines actually rose from 85 percent to 90 percent in recent years.
