Poll: Should parents who don't get vaccinations for their children have child benefit cut in half?

Less than half of eligible girls began the series of HPV jabs last September, far lower than the target of 80%.

AN IRISH DOCTOR has suggested that parents who don’t get the recommended vaccinations for their children should have their child benefit cut in half.

Ruari Hanley made the call in the Irish Medical Times after less than half of eligible girls began the series of HPV jabs last September, far lower than the target of 80%.

He said there is an ‘ongoing campaign’ against the HPV jab which prevents cervical cancer.

So in today’s poll we’re asking: Do you think parents who don’t get the recommended vaccinations for their children should have their child benefit cut in half? 


Poll Results:

No  (12077)
Yes  (7221)
I don't know (835)
