NSW is moving to ban unvaccinated kids from schools and child care facilities.
Both of my kids were un-vaccinated…for a couple of reasons and none of it hippy dippy shit. Simply they were both highly allergic to egg white and other substances. No doctor, either GP or at the hospital was prepared to put their signature on a piece of paper to say it would be ok. In fact they insisted if we were to vaccinate at all that it MUST be done in a hospital under supervision.
They have since grown out of their allergies…but my daughter still has to be careful with egg-white.
I’m not sure a ban will work though.
A move to ban unvaccinated kids from NSW preschools and childcare centres isn’t about discriminating against the children of vaccine refusers, the state opposition says.
Labor leader John Robertson will introduce amendments to the public health act which would give early childhood centres the right to refuse kids who haven’t had their shots.
The move comes amid concern about high rates of unvaccinated children in some parts of NSW as well as the emergence of so-called ”anti-vaxxers” who refuse vaccination.
Some parts of NSW had lower vaccination rates than Rwanda, Mr Robertson said.
