If "there is no vaccine, there is no school": the drastic measure of Italy to combat the anti-vaccines movement

In Italy, the so-called Lorenzin Act came into force, which seeks to ensure that children under 6 years of age are fully immunized. Violators of the law risk a fine of 500 euros, about 380 thousand Chilean pesos.

In Italy, a law came into force that will prohibit children under 6 years of age who are not vaccinated from attending classes. This measure was taken to combat the anti-vaccine wave that is shaking the European country.

In fact, thanks to the law, this week more than 300 children could not go to classes in Bologna. In the region of Modena, the figure is higher, since it could amount to about 600 students.

The so-called Lorenzin Law, named after the former Minister of Health, Beatrice Lorenzin, seeks to increase the rate of vaccination of children in Italy, after the increase in cases of measles in the country. Currently the figure reaches 80% of children and is intended to reach the 95% recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Technically, parents can send their children without vaccines to school, but are exposed to fines of more than 500 euros (about 380 thousand Chilean pesos). In Italy, vaccines are mandatory for children between 0 and 16 years of age, among which are vaccines against lanti-polio, diphtheria, tetanus, anti-hepatitis B, whooping cough, anti-Haemophilus influenzae type B , measles, rubella, mumps and chicken pox.

For children to attend classes, they have to prove with a medical certificate that their children are immunized. Health Minister Giulia Grillo has summarized the rule in the slogan: "There is no vaccine, there is no school".
