Parents who oppose vaccinating their children may end up in court and even lose custody of the children.

The provisions of the vaccination law also extends to children of foreign families

Up to March of this year the national children’s welfare, the Patronado Nacional de la Infancia (PANI), received a little more than 3,500 complaints, ranging from lack of medical attention to carelessness in vaccination.

Parents are obliged to vaccinate their children and if they oppose it, they are exposed to losing custody of the children.
