Australia to force vaccinations or lose socialized medicine coverage

“No jab, no pay” is the headline as Australia has moved strongly for the government to force vaccinations on all children and intimidate parents into compliance, even it’s against their religion.

Many parents opt out of vaccinations, filing religious and personal belief exemptions to avoid immunizations they believe are too risky for their children. In America, California and numerous other states are attempting to ban exemptions for children entering school in the wake of the hyped Disneyland Measles scare.

The government in Australia is pushing through legislation to deny childcare benefits to parents who refuse to vaccinate their kids.



“The choice made by families not to immunize their children is not supported by public policy or medical research nor should such action be supported by taxpayers in the form of child care payments,” said Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott in a joint statement with Social Services Minister, Scott Morrison.

Thousands of families could lose out on welfare payments, with the Australian government estimating more than 39,000 children under the age of seven have not been vaccinated because of their parents’ objections.

Anti-vaccination campaigns have recently gained traction in Western countries with some parents believeing the shots cause autism.

Existing exemptions on medical or religious grounds will continue said Abbott, but guidelines on religious exemptions will be tightened.

“It requires the formal position of that religious body being advised to the government and approved by the government. This is a very significant narrowing,” Morrison told reporters in Sydney on Sunday.

He added that no mainstream religious organizations have made any formal objection to immunizations.
