Inject Children Or Lose Money : Australian Government

THE Federal Government will withhold more than $2100 in tax benefits for families who refuse to vaccinate their children.

The move is a drive by the Gillard Government to boost vaccination rates, with one in 10 Australian children not immunised.

It comes as part of a major shake-up of the national immunisation program which includes the introduction of more vaccines.

Children will have to be vaccinated against chicken pox, meningococcal C and pneumococcal from July 1, 2013.
