Italy Mandates Vaccines for 12 Childhood Diseases, Germany May Impose Fines for Rejecting Vaccines

Italy experienced a threefold increase in cases of measles over last year.  In response, Italian politicians mandated vaccination against 12 common infectious diseases, including measles, polio, whooping cough, meningitis, and hepatitis B, for children through age six, before they can enroll in school. Not to be outdone, Germany is considering imposing a $2,800 fine against parents who do not allow their children to be vaccinated. –GEG

Fines of up to €2,500 ($2,800) could await parents in Germany who fail to vaccinate their children, as panic and an ongoing outbreak of measles spread like wildfire across the nation.

Last week, a 37-year-old mother of three succumbed to the highly-contagious illness in North Rhine-Westphalia — and that troubling portent has officials rushing to quash the epidemic by requiring kindergartens to inform health authorities if parents do not receive vaccination counseling.

Noncompliance could find children expelled.

“Nobody can be indifferent to the fact that people are still dying of measles,” asserted Germany’s Health Minister Hermann Gröhe, reports Bild, adding the tightening of laws surrounding inoculations will be imperative, due to the widespread outbreak.

In March, the BBC reported “measles had become endemic (meaning that it is self-sustaining, continuing to spread within the country) in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Switzerland and Ukraine,” as Forbes paraphrased. “The worst measles outbreak is in Romania, which reported over 3,400 cases and 17 deaths in just the first 3 months of this year.”

By the middle of April, Germany had 504 reported cases of measles in 2017 — up from just 33 in the same time period the previous year, and already in excess of the 326 cases reported for the whole of 2016.

German authorities already have the legal means to fine parents who choose not to vaccinate their children — but reporting those parents had been left to the discretion of schools.

Notes the BBC, the “upper house of the German parliament, the Bundesrat, said forcing kindergartens to report some parents to the health authorities might breach data protection laws.”

European officials appeared to lay blame for the insidious epidemic squarely at the feet of the vaccine awareness and anti-vaxx movements, following the worst measles outbreak in two decades in 2015.

Italy, however — which has thus far experienced a threefold increase in reported cases, compared with last year — took requirements about inoculation a step further than Germany.

Last week, Italian politicians mandated vaccination against 12 common infectious diseases — measles, polio, whooping cough, meningitis, and hepatitis B, among them — for youngsters through age six before they would be permitted to enroll in State-operated schools.

Italian officials excoriated what they termed “anti-scientific” theories on vaccination, such as a possible but as-yet unproven link to autism, for a decline in children receiving measles and other shots — a sufficient gap as to be conducive to an outbreak of this magnitude.

While authorities from a number of European nations lambasted parents for putative negligence in failing to vaccinate kids against measles; but, as the BBC reports, the World Health Organization noted only around 5,000 cases across the continent in 2016 — the lowest total ever recorded.

It is absolutely outrageous and wrong to force anyone or their kids to put anything into their bodies that they don’t want or agree to. This is an infringement of a basic human right. I was reading somewhere how there are a lot of people who are chipped and don’t even know it, and it is probably through these vaccines.

I’m sure if they investigated further, they would find that most of those who contracted the diseases had already been vaccinated. This is almost always the case.
