A RECORD number of parents are telling the government they have made the dangerous decision not to vaccinate their children from life threatening diseases because of ‘conscientious objections’.
Department of Health data shows in 2006 the total number of children under 7 years of age whose parents told authorities they were not vaccinating their children because they had a personal, philosophical, religious or medical objection was 18,899 — or 1.03 per cent of the population of children under 7.
By the end of 2011 that figure had jumped to 29,968 or 1.41 per cent of all kids under 7.
Note: Only 1.41% of refuseniks? Wow a really scary trend Australia.
