A leading emergency doctor is calling for exclusion zones around hospitals to keep patients and clinical staff safe after anti-vaxxers targeted a children’s hospital in Melbourne over the weekend.

Dr Stephen Parnis is urging government action on protests that “cross a line” after 200 anti-vaxxers blockaded Flemington Road outside the Royal Children’s Hospital on Saturday.
