10 December: No Jab No Play provisions affect Family Day Care enrolments  Printer Friendly

The Council is reminding parents that two new pieces of legislation about immunisation, the “No Jab, No Play” and “No Jab, No Pay” laws, will affect the enrolment process and childcare payments for Family Day Care and In Home Care services from 1 January 2016.

Under the “No Jab, No Play” legislation, before a child can be enrolled, early childhood services will have to first obtain evidence that the child is fully immunised for their age, is on a vaccination catch-up program or is unable to be fully immunised for medical reasons.

Conscientious objection is not an exemption under the new legislation.

The “No Jab No Pay” legislation also brings changes to the immunisation requirements for Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR).

CCB and CCR payments have been conditional on children up to the age of 7 meeting current immunisation requirements. From 1 January 2016, this requirement will be extended to apply to all children and young people up to 20 years of age.

The Council offers free immunisation for vaccines that are required to complete the prescribed schedule. Immunisation sessions are held at the Benalla Community Ray Sweeney Centre, 45 Coster Street, Benalla, on the first Monday of the month between 10-11.30am and Waminda Neighbourhood House at 19 Ballintine Street Benalla on the first Monday of every month at 12.45-1.30pm
