Community health group told to remove NSW Health logo

Carers support service Working Carers Gateway, based in Ballina in northern NSW, published advice on its website this week on new rules that require parents to show proof of vaccination in order to have children admitted to child care facilities.

The website posting, which was accompanied by a NSW Health logo, said the new rules “may be of interest to those… who have chosen not to vaccinate their child for health contra-indication reasons”.

“The Australian Vaccination Network says it wants more parents to be properly informed about the pros and cons of vaccination issues and offers interesting and well researched information to add to the debate,” the post said.

“[The AVN’s website] is one of the few sites where you can find information about the ingredients in vaccines and their potential harmful health effects.”

The post then provides a link to the AVN’s website.
