The South Australian government is proposing changes to its ‘no jab, no play’ laws. The law will require children to be age appropriately immunised (or have a medical exemption) or be on an immunisation catch-up program to access early childhood care facilities.
Parents will also be required to provide proof of immunisation to any childcare services used and the service will be required to keep copies on file for the duration of the child’s enrolment at the centre.
The South Australian Public Health (Immunisation and Childhood Care Services) Amendment Bill 2017 is open for public comment until 11 August 2017.
