Too few Americans are getting needed vaccinations, according to the CDC.

It says, each year, some 45,000 Americans die from diseases that could have been prevented by vaccines.

The CDC says vaccine rates probably remain low for several reasons. They include, not enough information about which vaccines are needed, and they are not regularly scheduled by age like most pediatric vaccines.
