    Sorry, I'm a bit confused. You are a paed nurse but didn't know that immunising isn't compulsory
    I don't think you have anything to worry about really. Parents of children who haven't been immunised are usually pretty reactive when there is an outbreak of something that can be prevented by a vaccine and will withdraw their children from the childcare centre...in my ten years as a Director I can only recall a handful of times that this has happened
    Cheers

    Wow, I really am sorry about your friend's bubba, but that's really harsh. The only people I know who skipped the whooping vaccine are those with children too sick to have it.

    OP I know its upsetting how many people do not vaccinate but as others have said you can't do anything about it short of staying inside all day every day. 10% does seem like quite a high rate of non vax kids though!
    Let's hope that one day people stop this fear of refusing to vax for no good reason (yes I know there are some that do have a good reason but they are few and far between). Then maybe diseases like measles and pertussis can go the way of smallpox and diphtheria. Eradicated

    Jasper just isn't vaccinated for 1 thing. I did have to disclose this to his daycare when I enrolled. If there's a case of it in the centre he'll be excluded until it passes.

    I'm glad that children who - for whatever reason - aren't immunized, cannot be discriminated against.

    And if there was an out break of any of the things jasper is immunised for at his centre I'd probably still keep him home as immunization is 100%.

    well..to me ANY parent who chooses not to vaccinate as they feel it would compromise their child, has a valid reason.

    There is NOT enough information and so how is anyone to make a fully informed choice.

    IMO, if a parent perceives a risk then all they can do is refuse to have their child vaccinated..
    as ANY parent who suspects it could be a risk, and goes ahead anyway is way worse!

    The fact of the matter is, your child is more likely to pick something up in the general population eg. the supermarket, from an adult who hasn't kept up with their boosters. My dh and I, and our parents have all had our boosters, what about you and your parents/ inlaws op?

But it still doesn't stop me from being concerned for his well being.
    Numerous paperwork? All I have ever had to do is hand over a copy of my child's consensus objectors form and acknowledge that I know that ANY child who's vaccination status isnt as per schedule will be excluded during an outbreak, every parent should know this because it applies to everyone.

    As a side note I'm curious to know, is it compulsory for child care workers to have there vaccinations up to date? It wasn't when I was there.

    No it isn't. At one centre, whooping cough was offered free a couple of years ago to anyone who wanted it, but that was only one centre.
