    The biggest increase in non vaxers are in areas of high income earners so I don't think this will have much of an impact.

    Yes it's a secret circle with members only allowed entrance if they display their non vaccinated records lo ... The done thing hmmm it's not a decision to purchase a thermo mix. Neways to answer your question, I have only 3 friends who choose not to vaccinate or selectively/delay. What I should of wrote was majority of friends I have who don't vaccinate.

    You don't feel that the wellbeing of your childs health has any implications on their chances of contracting a VPD?

    I don't understand your question.

    I'm not sure I understand your reasoning, are you saying that you believe your child(ren) has an exceptional immune system & is therefore never going to be at risk of catching a VPD? Or that catching VPD's is good for the immune system? I have met a few people who believe this.

    I think my DD has a pretty good immune system but I'm still $hit scared of measles & can't wait till she is 1 year old so she can get the vaccine. I was the same about whooping cough - as a health professional I've seen adults with it which is bad enough, can't imagine how terrible it would be to see a baby with it.

    Earning a high income and having a Uni degree etc is no guarantee of intelligence either!!!

    I have no problem with this idea, with the exception of non-vaxxing for medical reasons.

    I am all for this plan and think it is long overdue!!!!

    Would love to see it in schools and daycare as well.

    Also when there is an outbreak non vaccinated children should be banned until the contagious period is over... Just like in the states...

    Being healthy isn't some cure-all for whopping cough or Meningoccal though. These are pretty rampant illnesses than can and do take hold of healthy people. Bottom line is my newborn doesn't have the immune system, nor does the old lady in the nursing home. And that is my concern. I have faith mostly (I know vaxes aren't 100%) in vaccinations therefore once my kids have had all their shots I feel like they are relatively safe. It's the most vulnerable that concern me.

    No amount of breast milk or 'homeopathy' is going to safe guard my 3 week old from WC if you have it.

    For starters you don't have to give vax of allergic etc I'm sure that will still stand.

    I'm all for it. Too many idiots not vaccinating due to laziness! It's not that hard getting needles done.

    Plus adults too, they need add that.

    I don't care about the money taken away my fear is kids not getting into childcare centres & schools. Every child deserves education but to be turned away due to parents views

    This does happen in childcare. Non vaccinated children cannot attend until the outbreak is gone. (Well all the centres I have worked in have followed this rule).
