Vaccination for rotavirus, hepatitis A and hepatitis B rose among children 19 months to 35 months old from 2012 to 2013, CDC researchers wrote the agency's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Among 2-year-olds, rates of additional doses and boosters lagged. Researchers found substantial differences by state, and socioeconomic factors also influenced vaccination. Overall, most children are getting some protection: "The number of children who do not get any vaccine remains low and stable at less than 1 percent," said the CDC's Dr. Melinda Wharton.
