Are vaccinations compulsory to attend state primary school?

Postby atoz34 » Tue 10 May 2011 21:31 GMT

I have two unvaccinated girls and have tried to research Malta's policy on immunisations re primary school ... but am struggling to find a definitive on this.

Can anyone out there tell me what the legal requirements are?

Do I have to produce a vaccination card to get them into school and if so, what particular vaccinations are required? I am loathe to vaccinate, so am hoping somebody will confirm it's not compulsory!

Many thanks

I know children have to pass a medical before being admitted to a govt school, but not sure what it consists of.

What are your reasons for not vaccinating them ?
