Croatian court keeps vaccination mandatory



The Croatian Constitutional Court has rejected a proposal to review the country’s mandatory vaccination laws, saying that “The child’s right to health is more important than the rights of parents to make (wrong) choices. ”

Croatian parents can be fined for not vaccinating their children. In 2013, 143 elected to do so. The tough laws are an attempt to halt the slump in vaccination rates across Europe and avoid situations like the measles outbreak in New York.
