Doctors split over 'big stick' approach to vaccination

Doctors' groups are divided over the Federal Government's announcement that benefits will be stopped for parents who do fail to vaccinate their children.

Sunday's announcement of a new "no jab, no pay" approach by Prime Minister Tony Abbott will see non-vaccinating parents lose the conscientious objector exemption for access to:

  • $200 a week in Child Care Benefits 
  • $7500 annual Child Care Rebate
