Whiteman: Educate parents about vaccinations before requiring schools to police the system

Paul Whiteman, general secretary of NAHT, which represents leaders in the majority of schools, said: “The important thing in this case is that we should follow the science and take the lead from medical professionals. The science clearly shows that immunisation is vital to prevent infection, however immunisation rates have fallen. Before this issue becomes yet another one laid at school’s front door to solve, NAHT would like to see more done to inform families about the need for children to be vaccinated. If this campaign was successful, it would be unnecessary for schools to police the system, which is surely better for everyone.”
