  • Italy bans unvaccinated kids from school

Under the "Lorenzin law", parents had until March 10, 2019, to provide documentation showing their child had been inoculated with a number of vaccinations, as reported by RAI News, Italy's national public broadcaster.

A new Italian law reportedly put into effect Tuesday mandates that parents get their kids vaccinated for school or risk new penalties.

The required vaccinations are polio, diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis B, pertussis, measles, rubella, mumps, chicken pox and Haemophilus influenzae type B.

According to BBC, the new law came amid a surge in measles cases - but Italian officials say vaccination rates have improved since it was introduced.

Health Minister Giulia Grillo said the rules were now simple: "No vaccine, no school".

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.

And while children of school age - which in Italy is six and above - can not be turned away, schools will reserve the right to impose a fine of up to €500 (£425).

Under the law, children over six can not be banned from school but their parents will be fined up to €500 (£425).

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.
