Starting in 2016, Australian parents who choose not to vaccinate their children will no longer be eligible for certain welfare benefits, according to a press release.
“The government is extremely concerned at the risk this poses to other young children and the broader community,” Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said in the release. “The new policy will tighten up the rules and reinforce the importance of immunization and protecting public health, especially for children.”
