Preschools and childcare centres in New South Wales may be given the legal right to refuse to enrol children who have not been vaccinated.
The state Opposition will present legislation to Parliament allowing the right of refusal following declining rates of vaccination that in some parts of NSW are now lower than in Rwanda.
Health authorities have warned that unless checked, the decline will threaten the measles-free status Australia achieved in 2005 and new epidemics would become inevitable.
