"No jab, no pay" policy clearly working

THE Federal Government says more than 5000 extra children across the country have been immunised since the introduction of the Coalition's controversial "no jab, no pay" policy in January.

Under the policy, family payments of up to $15,000 a year are withheld from parents who do not have their children vaccinated.

Social Services Minister Christian Porter said 5738 Australian children whose parents had previously been listed as vaccination objectors had been immunised.

More than 148,000 children who had not been up to date with their vaccinations had also met the requirements.
