IANS 

Rome, May 15 (IANS/AKI) The Italian is planning unspecified sanctions against parents who fail to immunise children attending state school, Italian Schools Minister Valeria Fedeli said on Monday.

"If the number of children being vaccinated is falling, we need to convey the importance of having the obligatory jabs," Fedeli told SkyTg24.

"Given that the Health Minister has sounded the alarm, we must sanction the parents," she said.

The Italian plans to approve legislation this week that will oblige all state school pupils to be immunised, Health Minister Beatrice Lorenzin said on Friday.
