Member of Parliament for North West St Ann, Dr Dayton Campbell, is questioning a health ministry policy on school admission of children who are not fully immunised.

The Ministry of Health has said sanctions will be imposed on school administrators who admit students who are not fully immunised.
The ministry has noted that it is an offence under the Immunization Regulations of 1986 to accept children who are not immunised.
However, Campbell, who is a medical doctor, says he disagrees with that position.
He believes students should not be barred from entering school because they are not fully immunised.
Instead, Campbell says principals should be encouraged to arrange to have public health nurses carry out the immunisations, where children are found to have missed shots.
