Petition Make it a legal requirement to vaccinate your children
Intentionally not vaccinating children, except in cases where there are health risks, should not be allowed. It increases the risks of infection to the child and to other children.
On the 20th August 2018 it was revealed by Public Health England that in the first half of 2018 there were over 800 cases of measles, almost four times as many as there were in the entirety of 2017.
According to the NHS, 4 out of the 6 vaccinations given to 1 and 2 year olds showed decreases in immunisations which is a worrying development.
France has already made immunizations a legal requirement.
Between 2004 and 2014 there were nearly 10,000 cases of Measles and over 81,000 cases of mumps
