No Jab No Play
Phase one of the No Jab No Play policy will be introduced on January 1 and requires schools and childcare services to strengthen immunisation records.
The information collected can be used to provide support and referral pathways for families, to ensure their children are protected against preventable diseases.
It will also enable the Department of Health to identify under-vaccinated children and exclude them during a disease outbreak.
Government officials are aiming to introduce a bill to stop under-vaccinated children from enrolling in childcare altogether by July 2019.
