Post Federal government's 'no jab, no pay' law sparks run on vaccines

The federal government's 'no jab, no pay' law has sparked a rush on vaccines as parents fear missing out on welfare benefits.
Under the vaccination policy, which came into effect on January 1, parents will lose the Family Tax Benefit Part A supplement and childcare subsidies if their child is not up to date with their immunisations.
State and territory health departments report they are being inundated with calls from GPs and health nurses about how to implement catch-up schedules, particularly for children who have never been vaccinated, as parents flock to immunisation providers.

I post this because I find the concept of "no immunization => no welfare" to be fascinating.
We already have some areas implementing "drug test positive => no welfare". Those have demonstrated to cost more than they "save".

On this, possibly a similar idea regarding how many kids suffer because of inadequate immunizations and then the tax-payer has to pay extra for health expenditures. Not just for the child that wasn't immunized, but health problems when such infections spread...
There don't seem to be statistics in the article to really document the reality of this situation.

So, you have no issue with the government telling someone what synthetic chemicals and live cultures must be injected into their child's body, and withholding financial support in order to enforce it, but you DO have a problem with making AN ADULT provide urine in a cup, in order to receive financial assistance to support those said same children?

Okay......
