Australian State NSW Passes Proof Of Vaccination Needed For Childcare Centres

A little while back I wrote about the mass media effort to encourage vaccination in Australia – now it appears laws have now passed:

 Vaccination laws: NSW parliament passes controversial laws over childcare vaccinations

The New South Wales Parliament has passed new laws covering childcare centres and vaccination.

From next January, a childcare centre can refuse to enrol a child whose parents or guardians cannot show proof of vaccination or provide an approved exemption.

Health Minister Jillian Skinner says parents who are seeking an exemption will first need to speak to a general practitioner.

A pity that the word “controversial” appears in the title of the news item, but hopefully this will have an impact upon vaccination rates.
