TOP EUROPEAN COURT BACKS MANDATROY CHILD JABS
Written by wave FM on April 8, 2021
The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has backed the Czech Republic in its requirement for mandatory pre-school vaccinations.
The case was brought by families who were fined or whose children were refused entry to pre-schools because they had not been vaccinated.
In a landmark ruling, the court found that while the Czech policy interfered with the right to a private life, there was a need to protect public health.
However, the issue of routine childhood vaccinations has come under increasing scrutiny due to the spread of Covid-19.
