- In Italy, unvaccinated children can’t attend school.
- France expanded the number of mandatory vaccinations from 3 to 11.
- In Australia, school directors can be fined if all students aren’t vaccinated.
Another possible tool: Forcing parents to renew medical exemptions annually may help curb fraudulent dispensations.
