Correction: Skipping School Shots story

In a Nov. 28 story about state exemptions from required school vaccinations, The Associated Press, relying on information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, incorrectly reported Minnesota's 2010-11 exemption rate was 6.5 percent. The CDC based the figure on data provided by Minnesota. But Minnesota health officials say there was a math error and the correct exemption rate for 2010-11 was 1.7 percent. The CDC said it is correcting the number in its database but continuing to review the data.
