Clamp down on anti-vaxxers with new laws to be introduced banning unvaccinated children being enrolled in schools.

The Victorian governments No Jab No Play rules currently can be avoided with a note from a doctor, but under new legislation they will have to provide proof of a serious medical condition to enroll unvaccinated, reports Daily Mail.

‘The science is crystal clear, vaccinations are safe and save lives,’ Victoria’s health minister Jill Hennessy said.

Under the new laws, parents will not even be able to place children in childcare centres if they are unvaccinated, unless they have a significant medical reason not to be immunised.

‘People who tout misinformation about immunisation are a menace and put the health and safety of children at risk,’ Ms Hennessy said.

‘That’s why we want as many children as possible immunised and protected from life-threatening illnesses.’

  • I completely agree. Does anyone want a measles or chicken pox epidemic? Parents who refuse to vaccinate should be made to watch and listen to a baby with whooping cough. It was one of the most distressing things I’ve seen.


  • Good!! Make it as tough as possible. If the parents are that ignorant then the kids will need the superior education a private school will give.


  • I do agree it is a good move.


  • I agree! It’s something that I hope will be extended to other States too.


  • This is a very good thing.
