    You are probably right. In which case, I personally believe the law should be changed. I think endangering the health of others is worse.

    I heard this on the radio today and was shocked upon hearing that all 5 children were unvaccinated.

    I agree with @J37 there needs to be a law put in place to stop unvaccinated children putting others at risk. It doesn't come down to being politically correct in my opinion, when it is a life or death situation, and this potentially could be.
    I don't vaccinate my children for the hell of it. This angers me so much.
    And those poor children didn't ask for this.

    I worked at an After School Care in NSW that is now refusing children if they cannot prove their child is up to date on vaccinations. (Obviously certain circumstances are exempt) it is a public school.
    Obviously it is different to a day care but I still think it is the best idea. In my opinion.

    It is my personal belief that it should be compulsory for a child wanting to attend a public school to be vaccinated, as it is for most day-cares. If you choose not to immunise, you can home-school, out of respect and consideration for other people's children.

    I agree.

    Before enrolling my DS into our daycare centre I checked all children were vaccinated. He was only 7 months old at the time and I wasn't willing to risk it. It's not too far from Essendon either, scary.

    So so sad. Those poor kids.

    No excuse. You can get vaccinations for free. It takes a few minutes.

    Can't believe it.

    Childcare centers still accept children with a CO form, but I suppose it's easier for them to not accept unvaccinated children (without actually admitting that's the reason) compared to public schools that don't have as much choice regarding acceptance.

    Of the people that I personally know who don't vaccinate, they have either chosen to home school, unschool or send their children to alternative schools where not vaccinating is widely accepted.

    They can't stop a child from attending day care/ pre school /school who is not vaxxed ( just need exemption from GP) same with high school booster shots

    But if it was compulsory what about the kids that can't be vaxxed ( medical reasons) should they be not able to attend ? They are the ones I would feel bad for

    I consider medical and CO to be vastly different and I don't think anyone is speaking about the first.

    I agree with excluding kids who aren't vaccinated.
    For the children who are delayed or can't get the vaccines then 'real' medical reasons should be taken into account.
    Like my DD. . Who couldn't have the needles 12 weeks either side of her open heart surgery. Or kids who have allergies. A letter detailing this from a gp or paediatrician should be accepted.
    It shouldn't be just because they don't want to get them.
