V984 – Vaccinations in Children Bill 2016 (Second Reading), The Rt Hon. Nigel Farage MEP MP
Vaccinations in Children Bill 2016


Make the recommended vaccinations for children compulsory


BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

1 Vaccinations

(1) All vaccinations up to the age of 18 a child is recommended to receive by the NHS shall be compulsory.
(2) It is the responsibility of the parents to arrange appointments when the child is at the recommended age for the vaccination.
(3) For school-age vaccinations all schools shall liaise with the local health board to arrange a vaccination session for all school children of the right age.
(a) it is compulsory for all children to attend, and receive a vaccination at the session, unless;
(a) the child has already received the vaccination.
(b) the vaccination cannot be administered for medical reasons confirmed by a doctor.

2 Fines

(1) Parents who do not arrange vaccination for their children in the recommended age frame to receive the vaccination shall be fined £1000 on their first offence, and, or a prison sentence no longer than three years.
(2) Each subsequent offence shall see the previous fine issued multiplied by 0.2.

3 Recommended Vaccinations

The NHS shall publish a list of recommended vaccinations which shall be updated each year to add, or remove vaccinations.

4 Holiday Vaccinations

This bill extends to vaccinations recommended for visiting a country on holiday.

5 Commencement, short title and extent

(1) This Act extends to the United Kingdom.
(2) This Act shall come into force immediately following Royal Assent.
(3) This Act may be cited as the Vaccinations Act 2016.

Notes

Some parents object to their child receiving the recommended vaccinations which is dangerous for the child, reduces the chance of herd immunity being reached, and places strain on the NHS in the long-term because resources are spent treating avoidable diseases. This bill is a simple bill to remove parental choice when it comes to vaccines to make the recommended vaccinations compulsory for all children.

Changes

Added a section to deal with concerns about holiday vaccinations, and added an exemption where the vaccine cannot be administered for medical reasons.

Aye. It's a pity to see the fine still decreases with each subsequent offence, but the net benefit is still positive.

Now be very patient and quiet, children—we shall observe the anti-vax wing of the MHoC.

My polling shows that TSRians overwhelmingly identify as being 'libertarian'. However I imagine they'd support this in their droves. That is because they don't believe that the individual knows best - rather they believe that they themselves know best.

Food for thought.

Libertarians don't disagree with the harm principle however, also food for thought

Libertarians are all either naive or downright ****bags though, also food for thought

Nay, partially because the punishment is less for repeat offenders

Nay. Vaccination should not be Forced, it should be an option

One No has been removed due to a duplicate vote by seat 45.
