Reminder: Conscientious Objection permitted in New South Wales until the end of this year

As most of you will already know, the New South Wales parliament recently passed legislation abolishing the right to conscientiously object to vaccination for the purpose of enrolment in early education services in that state. The law takes effect on 01 January 2018.

However, as the law applies only to those enrolments on or after that date, and not existing enrolments, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children may still be enrolled up until 31 December 2017, even if the placement does not commence until 2018.

So, if you were considering enrolling your child in an early education service next year, please ensure the enrolment is finalised before the end of this year.
