Vaccinate kids or face jail, parents warned


PETALING JAYA: Parents who do not vaccinate their children can be jailed for a longer period for child neglect once the amendment to the relevant law is gazetted and enforced, said the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry.

In the Child Act (Amendment) 2015 that is in the process of being gazetted and enforced, those found guilty can be fined not more than RM50,000 and jailed 20 years or both, an increase from RM20,000 fine and 10 years jail or both according to the current Child Act 2001.
