Parents who refuse to vaccinate their children could get fines of up to RON 10,000 (EUR 2,200), according to the mandatory vaccine law the Senate voted yesterday.
In the case of compulsory vaccines, consent to immunization is presumed to be given, according to the bill.
The only notable change to the version sent by the Government was the removal of the provision that the vaccine law would enter into force from January 1, next year. No other date has been included in the Senate’s version, reports local News.ro.
Employers will have to pay from their own budget the costs for the vaccination of their own staff if employees are exposed to the risk of infection because of the job’s nature. However, employers will be able to deduct the costs for the vaccination of their own employees. Radio and television stations will be required to promote the vaccination campaigns for free, according to the bill.
The Chamber of Deputies also needs to approve the mandatory vaccine law before it enters into force.
