German Parents Who Don't Have Children Vaccinated Will Face Fines
Parents who don't have their children vaccinated will face fines, the German health minister says.
The fines of up to $2,806 are necessary because of a measles epidemic, Hermann Grohe told the daily Bild, BBC News reported.
"Continuing deaths from measles cannot leave anyone indifferent," he said.
Kindergartens will be asked to alert officials about parents who don't show a doctor's note proving that their child has been vaccinated. The revised law is expected to be adopted next month, BBC New reported.
