A growing number of parents are refusing to get their kids vaccinated, especially in wealthier and more highly educated pockets of the country, according to 2018 data from Blue Cross Blue Shield.

In that metro area, 14.2 percent of parents refused to give their infants at least one vaccine, the data show. The national refusal rate is 3.3 percent.
Two other New York metropolitan areas, including New York City, round out the top three areas of the U.S. with the highest rates of refusal.
