No jabs, no school, says MP

12th May 2008

Mary Creagh, a Labour MP, has said that children who have not been given "all their vaccinations" should not be permitted to begin school. 

The MP said schools should be required to ask for evidence that children had received all the jabs they needed so they did not infect other children. She said: "The MMR vaccination rate is at 85% and the target figure is 95%, so it's about catching children who may have moved or lost contact with their health visitor but also saying to parents your child has a right to live free from vaccine preventable diseases."
