From next Monday, the fully immunised criteria for babies turning one this year will include meningococcal “C” and pneumococcal. Varicella for chickenpox will also be included.
The vaccines are now required in order to receive Family Tax Benefit Part A supplement and government childcare payments.
Children must also have proof of full immunisation to enter a child care centre after new laws were introduced in NSW last month.
