Senator Simon Birmingharm, "Immunisation is an important health measure for children and their families because it is the safest and most
effective way of providing protection against harmful and often deadly diseases. Parents deserve to know their
children will be safe when they drop them off at child care. Parents of children too young to be immunised
deserve to know that every effort is being made to make safe the community in which their children live. Parents
of children who cannot be immunised for medical reasons deserve to know that every effort has been made to
ensure the community in which their children live is safe. Thanks to our No Jab, No Pay policy the communities
for these children are safer and lives will be saved."
