Err, message to you anti-vaccination people out there.

You do have freedom of choice as if you refuse to vaccinate your children you simply do not receive taxpayer provided family benefits.

It’s your choice based on ignorance and irresponsibility to your children’s welfare. Still,  as it is likely that you are of the cohort that are net takers from our welfare system (the taxes that you pay are exceeded by the benefits you take) you are doing the rest of us a favour in that regard
