Outside of Earth, are there any objects (planets, moons, asteroids) in our solar system that are naturally shielded from the radiation of solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs)?

Asked another way, is the radiation exposure discussed in Martian exploration a common concern for all other planets/objects?
