Anti-vaxxers

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

■ THE Tweed was fea­tured on Tues­day night’s 7.30 Re­port fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion which named the North­ern Rivers as an anti-vaxx hotspot. The re­port said the Mt Warn­ing com­mu­nity preschool is strug­gling, with al­most half the chil­dren un­vac­ci­nated. Un­der new state govern­ment rules, their un­vac­ci­nated sib­lings will be banned from en­rolling in preschool as part of its “No Jab, No Play” pol­icy. The re­port said 94.62 per cent of Aus­tralian five-year-olds were vac­ci­nated, while the av­er­age of un­vac­ci­nated chil­dren was just over five per cent.
