Vaccine Laws In Australia

Vaccine laws in Australia do not make immunization mandatory. No school is legally allowed to discriminate against a child because of their vaccination status. It does not stop allowing unvaccinated children to enroll or to attend. Refusing to allow a child to enroll or attend a service based on their immunization status is not unlawful discrimination under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991.
No Jab No Pay Law
Since January 2016, vaccine laws in Australia, known as “No Jab, No Pay” began the policy of withholding child benefits from parents who do not vaccinate their children. You can still get a medical exemption for vaccines. This exemption only accepts anaphylactic reactions to individual vaccines or vaccine components, natural immunity, and temporary exemptions are also given to immuno-compromised children. A 2017 Administrative Appeals Tribunal has upheld the right of an appropriately qualified doctor or specialist to certify in writing without using the extremely restrictive Human Services medical exemption form, which enables a child to get their payments reinstalled.

For Parents Who Choose Not To Vaccine In Australia:
As of January 2018, parents whose children are not fully vaccinated lost their Family Tax Benefit Part A end of year supplement, worth $737. The new changes mean the loose $28 (Australian dollars) every two weeks instead, on a payment of $400 which is overall roughly the same amount of money. Parents who do not vaccinate their child can also lose their family tax benefit that is worth $2,170 per child and child-care rebate that is worth up to $7,500. The other FTB Part A and Part B benefits are NOT affected.
