We have seen a huge push over the last 12 months to try and increase vaccination uptake across the Western World.
As people have become aware of the propaganda and pseudo-science batted around by the very companies that produce the vaccines, and the knowledge that the CDC had been covering up results for the MMR Vaccination and it’s links to Autism, it was inevitable that more and more people would begin to question whether they could trust what was being suggested to be pumped into the bloodstreams of their children.
Italy makes 12 vaccines mandatory for school children
Italy have stated they are attempting to tackle misinformation about Vaccines by making 12 vaccines mandatory for children who are using the state schooling system. The Independent reports:
The Italian government has made 12 vaccines mandatory for children attending school up to age 16 in an effort to combat what it characterises as misinformation about vaccines.
The new measures followed an intense public debate over vaccines after a measles outbreak and political sniping over accusations that the populist 5-Star movement had emboldened anti-vaccine advocates.
Paolo Gentiloni, the Italian Premier, told a news conference that the new rules aimed to combat “anti-scientific theories” that have lowered Italy’s vaccination rates in recent years.
The government approved making 12 vaccines, including measles, rubella and chickenpox, mandatory starting this September for children attending Italian pre-schools through the second year of high school. Other required vaccines include tetanus, diphtheria, polio and hepatitis B.
Germany to fine parents who ignore vaccine advice
Just last week we heard the news that Germany would begin fining parents who fail to take advice from their Doctor on Vaccines. Fox News reports:
Germany is set to pass a law next week that will require kindergartens to inform authorities if parents have failed to consult a doctor about vaccinating their children, with those who refuse advice subject to fines worth up to $2,800.
The law, expected to take effect on June 1, comes as leaders across Europe move to tighten vaccination laws amid a spike in measles, chicken pox and mumps. By mid-April, German health officials had counted 410 measles cases compared with 325 total in 2016, BBC reported.
