Germany is requiring parents to vaccinate their children against measles or face a fine of as much as $2,750.

The Measles Protection Act was passed 14 November by the Bundestag, requiring all children entering school or kindergarten to have the measles vaccine. Parents will need to provide proof of measles vaccination in order for children to attend school. The mandatory vaccination also applies to all teachers, educators, daycare workers and medical staff born after 1970.
