No Jab, No Play
From 1 January 2016
All parents/guardians seeking to enrol their child at an early childhood service in Victoria will be required to provide evidence that the child is:
- up-to-date with vaccinations for their age
- on a vaccine catch-up schedule
- has a medical condition preventing them from being fully vaccinated.
A 'conscientious objection' is not an exemption under the 'No Jab No Play' legislation.
Only parents of children who are fully immunised or are on a recognised catch-up schedule can receive the Child Care Benefit, the Child Care Rebate and the Family Tax Benefit Part A end of year supplement.
Children with a medical contraindication or natural immunity for certain diseases will continue to be exempt from the requirements.
Conscientious and vaccination objections on non-medical grounds will no longer be a valid exemption from immunisation requirements.
Families eligible to receive family assistance payments and have children less than 20 years of age, who may not meet the new immunisation requirements, will be notified by Centrelink.
To request an Immunisation History Statement, contact the ACIR:
For parents of children who are not fully immunised, you may wish to:
- visit the City of Boroondara Immunisation Service
- talk to your regular family doctor
