Mexico makes vaccines for minors mandatory

The Mexican Senate approved the ruling that the person who exercises the parental authority, guardianship or custody will be obliged to ensure that the minors receive the referred vaccines unless there is a certified medical justification to the contrary.

In case of failure to comply without medical justification, the procurator's offices for the protection of minors may intervene to make use of the powers conferred by law in this area to carry out actions aimed at making the vaccination effective.
