No Jab No Play

From the 1st January 2016, new legislation known as "No Jab No Play" commenced in Victoria. From this date, all children enrolling in early childhood education and care services will need to be up to date with their immunisation or have an approved exemption. Under this new legislation you will be asked by the kindergarten/preschool to provide your child's vaccination records to meet these new requirements.
