Unvaccinated children could be rejected by childcare centres under planned law

Queensland childcare centres could soon have the power to reject children if they have not been vaccinated. Health Minister Cameron Dick, a supporter of vaccination, said he would introduce legislation by the end of the year which would give the state’s childcare operators the choice to turn down the enrolment of a child if they are not fully vaccinated.

New South Wales claimed the highest number of parents objecting to vaccines on moral or philosophical grounds. Under that state’s “no jab, no play” law, children who have not been vaccinated cannot be enrolled in childcare unless they have officially lodged an objection. Children who are not immunised because of medical issues are also exempt.

This is a very interesting topic that has been on the governments agenda for quite some time will be interesting to see what unfolds.
