If You Don't Vaccinate Your Child, You are about to be Fined
You know that old policy “No jab, no pay…”
Well, the Government are cracking down on the immunisation issue and are reforming the ‘No Jab, No Pay’ policy.
With the reform, Parents who refuse to vaccinate their children stand to lose $28 a fortnight from family tax benefits.
The original policy fined families a one-off $726 supplement, however, a loophole meant that families earning $80,000 escaped the penalty.
Following the reform, 400 000 income families are set to lose the benefit if they do not vaccinate their children.
The debate has been a contentious issue for many years and now the Government are saying there is no valid reason for people to choose not to immunise their kids.
