Report: 3% of kids entering kindergarten granted vaccine exemption
A CDC report found 3% of children entering kindergarten during the 2022 to 2023 school year were granted a vaccine exemption from their state.
That’s the highest exemption rate ever reported in the U.S. Forty states saw rises in exemptions. The report did not go into detail on reasons for the increase.
Experts suggest the findings reflect Americans’ growing unease about medicine in general.
