March 07, 2019 - Edmonton, AB - Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel promised an Alberta Party government will require children to have up-to-date immunizations in order to attend a publicly-funded school.
“This is a public health issue, plain and simple. Parents should be able to send their kids to school without fear they’ll contract serious illnesses such as measles, mumps, whooping cough and polio. Under an Alberta Party government, children will need to have up-to-date immunizations in order to attend a publicly-funded school. At a time when measles outbreaks are rising throughout the world, and even occurring in Canada, it’s more important than ever that our children and communities are protected. We send our kids to school to learn, not to get sick.”
