What the law on the obligation of vaccines says
Il Vaccines decree a high the number of Compulsory vaccines during early childhood from 4 to 10, as well as recommending others to be done by age sixteen. As we said, this law was necessary due to the continuous deterioration of vaccination choice, which has brought the country below the 95% threshold, considered the point at which herd immunity is obtained.
For this since 2022 mandatory vaccines they are more than before. But what does "mandatory vaccine" mean? Parents or guardians of a newborn are required to respect the vaccination schedule in order for the child to participate in collective activity.Read also: Vaccines, how they work
What are the mandatory vaccines for newborns
In 2022, as for those born from 2022 onwards, i new born they will have to undergo some mandatory vaccinations, while others will only be recommended.
Among the mandatory during the first year of life we have:
- anti-viral hepatitis B
- whooping cough
- anti-Haemophilus influenzae type b
These vaccines are usually injected via combination hexavalent, that is, in a single puncture, during the third month of life, with a booster at the fifth and a third dose at the eleventh.
Among the vaccines strongly recommended by the Ministry of Health for those born in 2022 during their first year of life we have:
- anti-meningococcus B
These vaccinations are carried out in several doses, always during the first year of the child's life, the health company will establish the calendar.
Vaccines from the second year of life
In second year of life children will have to undergo other mandatory vaccines. So if your child was born in 2022 it will be his turn, while for those born in 2022 it will be discussed starting from 2022 (obviously the date of birth always counts).
All four predict one dose in the second year of life e one to six years and often measles, mumps and rubella are combined in the so-called trivalent.

What do I risk if I don't vaccinate my son
Some parents, despite the obligation, remain convinced a do not vaccinate your children. As we said, this compromises their entry into the community: they will not be admitted to the nursery or to the nursery, since there is no obligation to attend, but it is only a choice of the parents. For the elementary, if there is no proof of right to exemption, the child will not be admitted to school. However, there is an obligation to educate, so after the recall, if the parents are not convinced, they will in fact pay a fine and the children will go back to school.
The most serious risk, however, is not the fine: vaccines were created to save lives and avoid pandemics. If you are not afraid of measles, for example, just remember that every year it continues to kill thousands of people around the world and that thanks to the vaccination campaign in Africa, mortality has dropped by 91%.
Also, some bacteria like it pneumococcus they can lead to a widespread infection of the organs (sepsis) resulting in Multiorgan Dysfunction Syndrome, a condition that leads to death.
We also remember that the link between vaccine and autism (which is not a disease and cannot develop after birth, but is a neurological condition with which one is born) has been denied by many studies, confirming that it is a serious scientific fraud that has undermined the progress made to defeat certain illnesses.
