CHILDCARE centres will face fines for enrolling unvaccinated children, in tough new measures by the government raise the NSW vaccination rate.
New laws to strengthen the public health act passed through cabinet last night, and it is understood the coalition joint party room approved the changes.
The laws are a big win for the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph’s “No Jab No Play” campaign which was started to protect children from preventable diseases.
The amendments to the Public Health Act include allowing childcare centres and preschools to ban unvaccinated children and obliging centres to formally report any unvaccinated children. It is understood centres who enrol unvaccinated children may be fined.
If a parent has a “genuine objection” to vaccination, they can apply for exemptions, but they would have to provide proof from their GP or immunisation nurse.
It is understood genuine objections could include religious reasons or doctor’s advice that child would have a severe reaction to the vaccine.
The government will introduce the legislation today and it is expected to be fully endorsed by the opposition.
The campaign has two specific aims: first, to demand the NSW government amend the Public Health Act 2010 to allow childcare centres to ban unvaccinated children if they so wish.
Second, for the federal government to close a loophole enabling parents to claim they are "conscientious objectors" to avoid the rule that only vaccinated children are eligible for the 50 per cent childcare rebate.
NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner said the government had no plans to toughen laws. "Additional measures could be considered in future to maximise rates of vaccination in children, however the NSW government has no current plans to legislate compulsory immunisation," she said.
The federal government instituted financial penalties in July with the new Family Tax Benefit A supplement of $726 reliant on a child being fully immunised. But the carrot-and-stick approach does not affect wealthy parents in the identified areas who do not qualify for the benefit.
Federal Health Minister Tanya Plibersek has replaced the term "conscientious objectors" in government communications with "vaccine refusers". There is also a move to make the same change in legislation.
Ms Plibersek rubbished fear campaigns about the risks of immunisation.
"As a mother of three, I support immunisation and my children are fully immunised," she said.
"No vaccine or medicine can be guaranteed to be without side-effects, but these are infrequent and in the main are very mild.
"The alleged link between autism and immunisation has been disproved. It is absolutely 100 per cent not true. Unfounded allegations regarding adverse events from vaccines lead to downturns in immunisation rates and outbreak of disease."
WHO and Pharmaceutical Company Links Discovered
Several Danish journalists have been examining the links between the World Health Organization (WHO) and the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies. These pharmaceutical companies are reporting great profits by selling vaccines and medications to counter the H1N1 Swine Flu virus. This may not be all that much of a shock, but what is shocking is the fact that many of the scientists who sit on various committees of WHO, have been concealing the fact that they receive money and other incentives from the pharmaceutical giants around the globe.
JP Morgan, the international investment bank, has reported the pharmaceutical industry will make between seven and ten billion euros this year on the sale of A/H1N1 vaccines.
Keith Rupert Murdoch, AC, KSG (born 11 March 1931) is an Australian American media mogul. Murdoch became managing director of Australia's News Limited, inherited from his father, in 1952. He is the founder, Chairman and CEO of global media holding company News Corporation, the world's second-largest media conglomerate.
In the 1950s and '60s, he acquired various newspapers in Australia and New Zealand, before expanding into the United Kingdom in 1969, taking over the News of the World followed closely by The Sun. He moved to New York in 1974 to expand into the US market, but retained interests in Australia and Britain. In 1981, he bought The Times, his first British broadsheet, and became a naturalised US citizen in 1985.
In 1986, keen to adopt newer electronic publishing technologies, he consolidated his UK printing operations in Wapping, causing bitter industrial disputes. His News Corporation acquired Twentieth Century Fox (1985), HarperCollins (1989) and The Wall Street Journal (2007). He formed BSkyB in 1990 and during the 1990s expanded into Asian networks and South American television. By 2000 Murdoch's News Corporation owned over 800 companies in more than 50 countries with a net worth of over $5 billion.

If the "vaccinations prevent the disease" idea is so valid, then an unvaccinated child wouldn't be a problem, since the vaccinated children are supposedly immune from the disease the unvaccinated child carries.
