The vaccination debate has been hot in the news this year, after reports of many children falling ill. A new survey by EenVandaag and LINDA shows that seven out of ten Dutch people think that vaccinations should become compulsory.
More than 30,000 people were surveyed about vaccinations, raising a concern and calling for government intervention, reports RTL Nieuws. Seven out of ten people want vaccinations to be made compulsory. 60% of those surveyed said that they had concerns about information that GGD and RIVM provide about vaccinations, something which they say is ‘unclear’.
The government wants more children vaccinated
Concerns about the falling vaccination rate have been occurring for a while. Blokhuis wants to prevent this from happening. According to RTL Nieuws, in January he announced that in fact, they haven’t been falling. In previous years it had. 94% of all 1-year-olds receive the DKTP injection, but the World Health Organisation argues that 95% is a critical level.
