(Atlanta, GA)  --  New figures issued by the Centers for Disease Control show about two-thirds of toddlers in Washington state receive their vaccinations on time.  Officials say the trend means many kids in the state are at risk of getting preventable diseases, such as measles and whooping cough.  The CDC says last year, about 67 percent of children had been fully vaccinated by age three.  However, the agency says the coverage rate for the hepatitis B birth-dose vaccine in Washington was nearly 80 percent, which exceeded the national rate.
