Immunize Your Child Or Lose Your Welfare Benefits

Australia has taken a really bold and widely criticized step against parents who choose not to vaccinate their children.

The 'no jab, no pay' plan was announced by the federal government yesterday with the full support of the Australian Medical Association.

Under the plan, recommended by the Productivity Commission in a recent inquiry into child care, parents who decide against immunizations could be up to $15,000 worse off per child.

A petition against compulsory vaccinations in Australia that states 'all parents deserve to make an uncoerced choice' has already received more than 3000 signatures in five days.
