GreenMedInfo – Headlines were recently made announcing that the French government plans to make 11 vaccines compulsory for children, adding to the three-shot combination already mandatory (diphtheria, tetanus, and polio). Under the new jurisdiction, parents would be forced to follow the vaccination schedule. With the recent announcement, newly appointed Minister of Health Agnès Buzyn is making no secret that she will aggressively push a vaccine agenda upon the French people. In February 2017 the Conseil d’Etat, France’s highest administrative court, ruled in favor of the parental right to decide when it comes to vaccinations. Since France only offers the mandatory DTP vaccine in one shot, the French court gave the Ministry of Health six months to find a solution to parents who would like the shots separate while also striking down arguments on the alleged risks of non-compulsory vaccinations associated with the three mandatory vaccinations. Instead of working towards a solution, Buzyn’s Ministry of Health decided to double down and announce a new 11-shot forced vaccine schedule for French children starting in 2018. The move, like those happening simultaneously in Italy, Poland and other European countries, appears to be leveraging media fear and hype over the increase in measles cases.
