Parents who fail to vaccinate their children should face barriers to enrolling them in school and childcare centres, the Australian Medical Association says.
Only one state, NSW, requires childcare centres to ask for proof of vaccination when children enroll.
And Queensland, South Australia and the Northern Territory aren’t required to ask about immunization status when children enroll for school, the Federal Department of Health and Ageing has warned.
