The following is a letter from one of our readers K Ratnam.

My 5 year old boy is rejected from being registered for kindergarten 1 because we, his parents, did not approve, and are not willing to sign for immunisation and vaccination.
Our main fear is that the suspected risks associated with vaccination and autism, and any repercussion from it to our child’s health in the long run. We have read of reports of children suffering or dying because of the immunisation/vaccination.
If vaccinations is a compulsory policy, why do you need parents approval signatures for this? Is it because Government is aware of the risks and they don’t want parents suing the Government for the damage on their child as a result?
