Hi Meryl, 
Thanks for your question of the Pirate Party, and please accept my apologies for the delayed reply.
As an evidence-based and pro-science party we support the general principles of vaccination. 
While you represents tens of thousands of deniers, we like to think we represent millions of people who don’t want to die of preventable diseases.
Our health policy states:

Vaccinations are also an important pillar of preventative practice, with the available science clearly showing that compromised herd immunity represents a threat to the entire population. Efforts at harm prevention are reckoned to be particularly effective at reducing the likelihood of chronic illness, which often require highly complex treatment regimens.

and includes this section within the broader text:

Undertake measures which ensure best-value for money in the health system

  • Provide financial encouragement for parents to vaccinate their children
Our policy can be read in full at:

Yours sincerely, 


Daniel Judge
