Frankfurt, Germany. Millions of people are afraid of vaccinations for their children, due to mercury poisoning and post injection effects, now Germany is state ordering compliance or fines. In moves that remind an older generation of dangerous state meddling in medicine.
The German government wants kindergartens to report on any parents who fail to show a doctor’s note proving vaccination. Failure to do so could mean expulsion of the child from the daycare centre, under the revised law. It is expected to be adopted next month.
The German government plans to introduce fines of up to $2,806 for parents who refuse to get their children vaccinated. Those illnesses include measles, polio, whooping cough and hepatitis B. More and more Germans are passing on the idea of getting their children vaccinated agaist diseases.
German Health Minister Hermann Gröhe said it was necessary to tighten the law because of a measles epidemic. “Continuing deaths from measles cannot leave anyone indifferent,” he announced
Recently a German mother of three died of measles in the city of Essen this week. Italy has recorded nearly three times as many measles cases so far this year than for all of 2016. Just last week the Italian government ruled that parents must vaccinate their children against 12 common illnesses before enrolling them at state-run schools.
This year Germany had 410 measles cases, compared with 325 for the whole of 2016, the Ilse Koch Institute reported.The institute said that besides children, all adults born since 1970 should get immunised against measles, if they had not had the measles shot or had had it only once.
