CDC officials reported Thursday that rates of annual flu vaccination increased by 5.1% in children 6 months to 17 years, and by 2.7% in adults last season, compared with the 2011-2012 season. Researchers also found that more pregnant women received flu shots, and a record number of health care workers were vaccinated. However, vaccination rates were highly variable by state and can still improve, experts said. The data were published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
