Public consultation on the South Australian government’s Early Childhood Services and Immunisation Discussion Paper closes this Friday June 28 at 5pm.
The government says the information gathered will assist in the development of future legislation. So this is probably your last chance to influence whether this government brings in a draconian version of ‘No Jab No Play’, where incompletely-vaccinated children are denied access to child care and kIndergarten, or a milder version where these children are sent home when there is an outbreak of disease for which there is a required vaccine. For more on this please see an earlier post on this website about the laws being considered in SA.
