Entornointeligente.com / The European Court of Human Rights has backed the Czech Republic in its requirement for mandatory pre-school vaccinations. The case was brought by families who were fined or whose children were refused entry to pre-schools because they had not been vaccinated. In a landmark ruling, the court found that while the Czech policy interfered with the right to a private life, there was a need to protect public health. All the cases pre-date the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the issue of routine childhood vaccinations has come under increasing scrutiny due to the spread of COVID-19. This is the first ruling from the European Court of Human Rights on compulsory vaccination against childhood diseases. The judges backed the Czech legislation by 16 to one.
