Italy may waive the requirement for parents to provide evidence that their children were vaccinated before they begin to sit down. ambiguous government policy on vaccines. Then this measure will be submitted to parliament.
The amendment was signed by P & # 39; s Jerusalem Siler, Committee Chairman and Senator with M5S, and vice president, Maria Cristina Kantte Series
Changes to the current law prohibiting unvaccinated children Access to kindergartens is reported to have been developed without the attention of Julia Grillo, the Minister of Health of the M5S. She has not yet publicly published this amendment.
Matteo Salvini, vice prime minister and league leader, recently wrote to Grillo asking unvaccinated children to be allowed to attend a children's room after their parents did not have.
"I do not want children in the B-Series," he said. "We have to organize ourselves, we can not have children outside the doors."
Two M5S politicians, Elena Fattori and Giorgio Tritstino, called for the amendment to be lifted, arguing that healthy children should not be sacrificed for political ambitions.
"The reason for applying for certificates is that there are children aged 0-6 who have not completed the vaccine cycle, and this affects the health of children, especially those who are more vulnerable," Fattori told Guardian.
"The amendment does not exclude the obligation for vaccines, but only the need for certificates, so it looks like a political trick to address anti-wax participants."
The obligation to provide certificates came into force in early March as part of a law introduced by the former center-left administration, which required a mandatory vaccination against 10 diseases, including measles. This law is being discussed, but as long as there are no wider changes, it remains in force. This in itself caused confusion among parents.
"Instead of sending an ambiguous message, the government must formulate a serious information strategy," Fattori said. "At this very dangerous moment, citizens should be aware of the importance of vaccines."
Fattori cited the case of a 20-day baby who died of a pertussis several days ago. Pregnant women are advised to protect their children from vaccination between 16 and 32 weeks of gestation.
A WHO Guardian analysis published in December showed that cases of measles in Europe increased to more than 60,000 in 2018 – more than double than in 2017 and the highest this century. Health experts warned that vaccine skeptics lower the level of immunization against measles, HPV against cervical cancer, influenza and other diseases, and that their thoughts are aggravated by social media and right-wing populists who are skeptical about medical organs.
For a long time, he promoted skepticism about vaccines, and made several turns on politics with coming to power with the League in June last year. The league also questioned the safety of vaccines
"There is a lot of confusion," said Roberto Buriani, a professor of microbiology at the University of Vita Salute San Raffaele, Milan, and a leading promoter. "For once the law is in force; vaccination coverage in all regions has grown dramatically, and it would be a pity to disassemble it. "
