Indiana Vaccine Exemptions

It turns out more Indiana students are being granted exemptions from vaccine requirements. But health officials say they don't have an accurate count because many parents won't let their child's immunization status be reported. The Indiana State Department of Health reports more than 230 exemptions were granted for kindergartners for the 2013-14 school year. Nearly 500 others received religious exemptions. Still, the exemptions account for about 1 percent of all children and aren't considered a huge cause of concern.
