Australia Weighs Banning Unvaccinated from ChildcareMarch 15, 2017 |
Unvaccinated children would be banned from childcare centres and preschools under an Australian government plan.
Some Australian states already have “no jab, no play” laws, but PM Malcolm Turnbull is calling for nationwide legislation.
Health groups have supported the push, arguing parents and the community have an obligation to protect children.
An Australian Child Health Poll survey of nearly 2,000 parents showed 5% of children were not fully vaccinated.
