Italy bans unvaccinated children from school Unvaccinated children in Italy banned from preschool under new law

Older children can attend school without being fully vaccinated, but parents face fines of 100 to 500 euros (C$151-754), and local health authorities will then schedule vaccinations for the children to make sure they get caught up.

In order to attend school, the Lorenzin law requires that students get a slew of vaccines, including ones for the chickenpox and measles, the BBC reported.

The fresh law took place amid an increase in measles cases, however, Italian officials declared that vaccination levels have been better since it was offered.

In Bologna, officials said the 300 children did not present the official document attesting to their vaccination Monday, and so could not attend public nursery schools.

"No vaccine, no school", Giulia Grillo, Italy's Minister of Health, told La Repubblica.

One of these government sources explained to CTV News , "When the school day starts, the phones go off". The improvements were largely seen among the students who were normally the lowest achieving.

Much like OR and Washington, Italy has been experiencing a measles outbreak due to unvaccinated children. Italian media report that regional authorities are handling the situation in a number of different ways.

Newly released figures show that Italy is nearing, and in some regions has already reached, a national immunization rate of 95 per cent, the World Health Organization's target.

According to the Times, the current Italian government is working on a confusing plan to introduce "flexible obligation", in which immunization would only be mandatory if rates dipped below herd immunity levels. His immune system was compromised as he was recovering from leukaemia.

Writing in a Facebook post on Monday, Ms Grillo admitted it "is a law that, at the time of approval, we criticised for several reasons" - and said that the law would be changed to include only those vaccinations that were necessary based on scientific data.
