Unvaccinated Kids Are Now Banned From Schools In Italy

Italy bans unvaccinated children from school

Children under six can be barred from attending nursery schools and kindergartens if their parents fail to present written evidence that they have had the required vaccinations.

Under the new law, children must now receive a range of mandatory vaccinations before attending school. The consequences for failing to comply with the legislation reportedly varies depending on how old the child is.

Italian children lacking proof that they have been vaccinated were turned away from nurseries on Tuesday after the country's populist coalition reversed its previously sceptical stance on the need for compulsory jabs.

The law, known as Lorenzin law, came into effect yesterday, Monday 11 March.

"No vaccine, no school", Giulia Grillo, Italy's Minister of Health, told La Repubblica.

National Hockey League investigating potential homophobic slur at Maple Leafs-Lightning game
Assuming the NHL's findings are indeed concrete, this is obviously the ideal scenario for the league, the Maple Leafs and Rielly. The issue of homophobia is one the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club strongly condemns and takes very seriously.

These include vaccinations for chickenpox, polio, measles, mumps, and rubella. "By now, everyone has had time to catch up".

Last year, it was reported just 85% of children in Italy were immunised for measles - despite a World Health Organisation recommendation that 95% should be vaccinated in order to prevent outbreaks.

The goal of the law, according to a government website, is to fight the gradual decline in Italy's vaccination rates.

The city of Bologna reportedly has at least 300 children who now do not comply with the vaccination requirements and are at risk of suspension from school.
