    Usually (ironically) Highly educated, wealthy areas - but, there are still large amounts of non vaxxers in lower socio economic places, like Lismore and surrounds - so it will definitely affect some.

    So basically the government is conscientiously objecting to conscientious (that doesn't look right...) objectors? And much like the parents of immune compromised/new born children, there are now repercussions for their decisions? Except they are now the ones that suffer?

    I just can't build up any sympathy for them. I just keep thinking of a little four week old boy who died a long, drawn out and agonising death. And how his parents truly had no choice.

    I thought that was the case but wasn't sure - kind of a strange, new age "keeping up with the Jones's" mentality.

    In that case it most likely won't have a massive impact to vaccination rates but will negatively impact those that need more education - still undecided tbh.

    Non vaccination is a rejection of civic duty for the betterment of all so it's a rather obnoxious action imo.

    i do not agree with this at all, my three children have never been vaccinated but for us we do not receive any government support as we earn to much so it wont affect us.

    I've always thought there should be a requirement for people having kids, we have baby classes so why not vaccine classes, how they work, why they work, the good the bad and the ugly - everything, just the whole truth.

    The issue of causing poverty is a valid one. I certainly would hate to see a child missing out bc their parent wasn't receiving FTB A. But if funds are that tight that they miss part A, maybe it's the catalyst for the parent to vax. On one hand I'm not sure how I feel about that - on another I see it as a means to an end.

    All these diseases are preventable. A WC vax for an adult is around $50, hardly expensive, and lasts TEN years. Children are free.

    Yep. That child's death was completely preventable.

    You are quite right, taking away FTA is hardly going to be much of a game changer with the majority of anti vaxxers, something else needs to be done to get the antivaxxers to learn to critically think about this issue. A feat that seems almost impossible.

    I'm quite unwell so not sure if this is sarcasm or not.

    It just another way the government is wanting to hurt the poor and not affect the rich.

    Seriously it won't even cross the rich radars. It not going to affect them one bit.

    A know this measure is to save money not lives.
