“Immunisation Week” a “reminder of how fortunate we are in NZ”

Immunisation Week is “a chance for New Zealanders to reflect on how lucky we are”, says Katherine Smith, the spokeswoman for No Forced Vaccines, a group that opposes forced or coerced vaccination.

Free vaccines and government promotion of vaccination have resulted in NZ having a record high vaccination rate for young children.
“On the other side of the equation,” Smith notes “New Zealand parents’ rights to make decisions about vaccination are respected by the government” and if “parents decide against vaccination, or for their children to have some, but not all recommended vaccinations, they are able to make this choice.”

No Forced Vaccines contributed a submission to the Australian Federal government following the call for submissions on the proposed “No Jab No Pay” legislation.
The No Forced Vaccines submission is submission number 323 on the bill and may be downloaded from the Australian website government website via this link: http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/Community_Affairs/No_Jab_No_Pay/Submissions
Over 90% of submissions that were received on the No Jab No Pay bill but despite this the bill was passed by the Australian government.
Literally thousands of Australians took to the streets in June this year to express their opposition to a proposed vaccination policy which could see families in which children (who do not qualify for medical exemptions) who are not fully vaccinated in accordance with government policy lose eligibility for a family tax credit and childcare subsidy worth up to $15,000 per child per year.
