Lambie pro vaccination crack down

Jacqui Lambie's on board with the Prime Minister's stern approach to forcing unvaccinated kids out of child care centres.

Malcolm Turnbull met with a mother who's 1 month old baby died from whooping cough, suspected to have been contracted at day care, and vowed to work towards Australia-wide rules.

On Tasmania Talks, Senator Lambie made her position clear.

"I was the first one off the blocks with Turnbull when he first came out to say this and I'm saying no jab no play, unless you've got a medical exemption there should be no reason every child in Australia shouldn't have those immunisations done."
