On June 21, 2015 Australians concerned about freedom of choice came together to express their opposition to the proposed “No Jab No Pay” policy* which could see Australian families in which children do not receive all the vaccinations currently on the national schedule (for babies and young children) lose up to $15,000 per child per year in lost childcare subsidies and a family tax credit.
