Description

‘Should the UK government change the current policy for childhood immunisation?’

In contrast with other countries, there is no legal obligation in the UK for parents to immunise their children against certain diseases. Rather, it is a matter of parental choice. Debate rivals, Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, will consider issues of human rights and public health arising over changes to childhood immunisation policy.

The Mason Institute warmly invites you to attend the Great Medico-Legal Debate 2018, University of Edinburgh and Glasgow, will consider issues of the current policy for childhood immunisation.
