NSW passes childcare vaccination law
Unvaccinated children will be banned from NSW childcare facilities from January after state parliament passed legislation.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull wrote to state and territory leaders in March requesting a uniform approach and the NSW legislation means directors of childcare centres will face a fine of up to $5500 if they break the rules.
"We are being very clear that choices of conscientious objectors, which are not evidence-based, will no longer be allowed to impact other families," NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said on Thursday.
