Parents risk being fined up to €500 (£425; $560) if they send their unvaccinated children to school. Children under six can be turned away.

The new law came amid a surge in measles cases - but Italian officials say vaccination rates have improved since it was introduced.

Can parents get those medical histories of their kids from the countries they left?

"Can parents get those medical histories of their kids from the countries they left?"

Can we get the medical histories for the 1,000,000 dead Iraqis that Bush's idiotic invasion caused? You want to bring up refugees, fine. We can bring up the causes of refugees. Bush and Cheney belong behind bars.

If they can't get medical histories, then you can just vaccinate again. I had medical records saying I had chicken pox as a kid (in the US) and still had to go get vaccinated for it when I went back to school to get my master's.

I think because I remember what it is like to have known someone who had polio and now you do see it any more... I have a very positive view of vaccination.

If gen XYZ and millennials need to be forced at needle point... then so be it... its for their own good.

They can think of it as the spanking they didn't get when they were being brats.

Remember Italy has absorbed a few hundred thousand "refugees" or in reality migrants,(the large majority are not from any war zone), have brought a few unwanted passengers with them. Just as they have here. I do note the lefty press seldom reports on the out breaks of several illnesses that we haven't seen in the US in decades. Mumps, red measles, and a couple of others. Don't underestimate these old illnesses we haven't had to deal with in a long time, they can kill. Ask the Native Americans.
