    I think as a parent you should have the right to choose. My child is fully vaccinated. However if you choose not to I don't think you should have a hand out to receive the money .

    FTA is not a reimbursement for having your child vaccinated though. What I find offensive is parents who feed their children take away constantly, with obesity related health issues, feeling because their child is vaccinated is more healthier an how they advocate health so positively ....

    If this convinces a quarter of non vaxers to vaccinate then I'm for it.

    What the...
    Sorry how is me feeding my child anything offensive to you.
    My child eating take away is not going to kill you kid.

    Healthiness is about a whole range of things relating to one person.

    Vaccination is about keeping a whole community healthy.

    I find this comment interesting - your friends also don't vaccinate - as in its the done thing to not vaccinate within your circle?

    I can see the point about the cost to the community for obese children or unhealthy children.

    However, these things are 2 separate issues. A VPD endangers the lives of others...children and those who are frail or weak.
    If one doesn't vaccinate it can cause another to become seriously ill, die or be permanently damaged. Obesity does not do that.

    They are not the same health issue.

    Do all of your friends not vaccinate? And if it's okay I would like to know why you don't? I'm not asking to be rude or anything just curious.

    Having just gotten over whooping cough at 8 mths pregnant (not fun) despite being vaccinated (15% of people who are vaccinated can still catch it but generally get a milder version), I'm all for it.

    Public policy has to use both carrots and sticks to achieve outcomes. When seatbelt laws were first introduced there was uproar about infringement on personal rights, likewise drink driving laws.

    This is a step in the right direction.

    I can't even begin to explain the worry I went through as a very pregnant woman, finding out that I actually had it, right after I'd been going to antenatal classes and had my baby shower where the guests included midwives, teachers and childcare workers. An absolute worst case scenario.

    Fortunately, my social circle are pretty much all vaccinated so it stops with me.

    I'd like to see the government go further and incentivise GPs to offer the booster to adults at a subsidised rate.

    I'm very interested to know why also. No judgement, just interested.

    In my experience the FTBA thing will only encourage the lower socio economic "can't be bothered to vaccinate" group, rather than the anti-vaxxers who believe they have made an informed choice. I know I'm making a huge generalisation here, but that's been my experience so far & I've seen nothing to change my mind.
    BTW total pro-vaxxer here if they make a vaccine for it, my family will have that vaccine, even if we have to pay.

    It's about time this was implemented IMO. The only exemption from vaccinating should be a medical one. No child will "suffer" so long as the parent/s vaccinate, it's as simple as that.

    This should further translate to children attending Day Care, Primary/High School, both Private and Public. Parents shouldn't get any kind of benefits for childcare and no funding should be given to schools for any student that isn't vaccinated with the parent/s instead having to pay the shortfall. That way it doesn't matter what end of the socio economic scale you are.

    There should also be transperancy, especially at Day Care/Kindy's etc about the immunisation status of a child. I personally wouldn't want my DD attending one that had unvaccinated children in it (medical exemption accepted). Frankly, why should our taxes have to pay for your unvaccinated child/children to go to Day Care/school etc?
