What vaccination exemptions does your state allow?

(CNN)All 50 states have laws requiring certain vaccines for children. But most people are familiar with the fact that exemptions to these requirements exist. All states allow some type of exemptions for medical reasons, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, which has compiled each state's laws on the subject.

Besides medical reasons, exemptions to vaccination requirements fall into two general categories: religious exemptions and philosophical ones for those who find vaccines a violation of their personal or moral beliefs.
