Non-medical vaccine exemptions

Rates of non-medical vaccine exemption are increasing anywhere from 20% – 500%. Nonmedical vaccine exemption rates rose 19 percent between 2009 and 2013, nearly doubled in Texas, and religious exemptions in New Jersey increased 5X from 2006 to 2014. Ethically manufactured vaccines could reduce these numbers significantly.
