Vaccination ordered by Court

Earlier case examples exist of court orders for urgent vaccination in the context of disease exposure.

More recently, the Family Court of Australia has refused to grant a mother an injunction against her former husband that would have prevented him taking their daughter to a doctor for routine vaccination. The mother expressed a preference for a homeopathic vaccination regime.

The case is briefly reported in Australian Doctor and the judgment is now available online .
