    Uh huh... and this is linked to religious objection to vaccination how?

    Also, did you see

    "In the last year, the measles cases confirmed in England have mainly been in older adolescents and young adults with many linked to music festivals and other large public events"

    Since some crazy people believe that the vaccinations contain aborted fetuses then I'm guessing any religion against abortion could use religious grounds to refuse them.

    Default Religion and Vaccinations.

    The JW used to refuse vaccinations as they used to be made with blood. They believe the soul is in the blood, which is why they won't accept any blood products. Not sure where they stand now that vaccines are synthetic. My grandparents grew up JW but left when my uncle was a baby and nearly died from whooping cough because the church wouldn't allow him to be vaccinated. I don't know of any Christian denomination that bans vaccination

    My cousins are JW, their kids are vaccinated. So no, it's not a Jehovah's Witness thing, being anti vax.

    Did I put that link in my original post?
    No.
    I asked a question out of curiosity.


    And in regards to the teenagers getting it at music festivals.
    Yes, that's how they CONTACTED the disease, same thing happened in Disneyland, it's not the CAUSE of the disease, which would be people not vaccinated to a high enough percentage.

    So here in Australia, there are no exemptions from vaccinations based on religious beliefs?

    No, there used to be but the Liberals have removed all exemptions other than certified medical exemptions with their no jab no pay policy. Although I'm at a loss to find a religion that actually objects to vaccinations. Even the POPE came out in support of vaccinations... so I think it might just have been an avenue antivaxers went down to justify some crazy reason not to protect their children from preventable diseases.
