Synopsis: 
This survey of reasons for non-vaccination among measles patients in Japan provided an important lesson. Many parents/guardians willing to immunize may not because they are busy, rather than because of anti-vaccine attitudes. Healthcare workers should provide honest risk and benefit information in addition to the vaccine schedule.
