Pro-vaccine Victorian paediatrician, Dr. Jenny Royle, strongly criticised the Victorian No Jab No Play law during a panel discussion at the 2018 National Immunisation Conference held in Adelaide during June.
I vehemently oppose the Victorian law, No Jab No Play. […] I don’t want people to be disadvantaged by strategies to increase immunisation coverage, and the Victorian law, No Jab No Play, disadvantages children and their families. I think denying a child entry into kindergarten is wrong. I think it’s a disproportionate response to the risk that a fully immunised child has in being in a kindergarten with a very small number of children who aren’t 100% up-to-date with their immunisations, and that risk is disproportionate to the punishment.
