It's growing into a controversial thing - should you or should you not get your baby vaccinated? Which ones should you say yes to and at what age? A new study said that almost half of US kids born between 2004 and 2008 were considered under-vaccinated before their second birthday.

Experts said this is cause for concern because large groups, such as schools or communities, can be at higher risk for preventable infections.
 
The CDC has a recommended schedule on when kids should get vaccinations. These are meant to protect them from bacteria and infections, most of which we don't see everyday.

Doctors work with new parents to help make decisions that are best for the children.
