In Pakistan, parents will be jailed for refusing to vaccinate their children – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

In addition to serving a sentence in a penitentiary center, parents who oppose the vaccination of their children must pay a fine. Its size is impressive: with our money it would cost about 15 thousand rubles. The authorities take these measures in a context of the spread of serious diseases in the country, for which there are vaccines. These include diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, measles, rubella and polio.

Wariness towards medicines in Pakistan often arises due to lack of information about the benefits of vaccines. One of the residents of the city of Karachi, speaking to reporters, said that he would rather spend time in a cell than allow his children to be vaccinated. The man says he doesn’t trust drugs. The intensity of passions in this area is prohibitive. Pakistani doctors involved in vaccination campaigns for the local population have been regularly attacked. As a result, medical staff are now forced to move around Pakistani cities with armed guards. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Pakistan and Afghanistan are the only countries in the world where polio is routinely reported. This is not the first time that Pakistani authorities have punished people for refusing to be vaccinated. Thus, in 2015, more than 470 people were arrested in the city of Peshawar for not vaccinating their children. It is true that they were all released on the same day.
