Measles vaccination must for children in Germany

17th July 2019

The Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet has decided that Germany will make measles vaccination mandatory for children from March 2020, with an aim to wipe out the resurgent and potentially deadly disease.

The admission of children in kindergarten or school will only be possible if they have had the jabs, and vaccinations will also be compulsory for staff in day-care centres, educational institutions, medical facilities and refugee shelters. Health Ministry aims at 95% vaccination coverage.

Violations of this will lead to fines up to 2,500 euros under the bill that is expected to pass easily through the Bundestag lower house of parliament.

The mandatory childhood vaccination against measles and other diseases was a long time demand of Germany’s paediatrician’s association.

The UN World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the global efforts to increase immunization coverage against deadly diseases are stagnating. They also said that last year, 350,000 cases of measles were reported worldwide, more than double the number for 2017. And the numbers increased fourfold globally in first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period last year.

Germany recorded 543 cases last year, and hundreds so far this year.
