Germany to fine parents £2,000 if they fail to vaccinate children for measles

The Bundestag – Germany's parliament – yesterday passed a law that means parents who do not vaccinate school-age children face fines of up to €2,500 (£2,140).

The new rules – which come into force in March – will also force parents to prove younger children have been vaccinated before they can attend nurseries or pre-schools. Visits to medical facilities, community centres and holiday camps will also require proof of immunisation.
