Parents are not irrationally rejecting the traditional, "core" vaccines

Exemption rates changes are parents responding to new requirements in the schedule Sometimes parents are being surprised at the start of the school year with a new requirement, and use the exemption to enroll their child and catch up the shot later (i.e. 7th grade TDaP). Or a vaccine has been added for an infection that is not casually transmissible and/or has a very low rate of serious complications (i.e. Hep A not airborne but fecal /oral transmission and very recoverable. Only 15 states require Hep A).
