states where medical exemptions for vaccines are easier to get have higher rates of unvaccinated kids -- according to a new study out of emory university.

researchers there evaluated exemptions from kindergarten entry requirements over a seven-year period.

they found rates of exemptions were higher in states with less stringent rules. experts are concerned having fewer students immunized will lead to less protection for children who cannot get the vaccines due to underlying medical conditions.
