De Ridder at hearing by Vaccination Committee of Dutch parliament

On March 22, 2019 Denise de Ridder participated in a hearing organized by the Vaccination Committee of Dutch parliament on measures to address the concerns of parents who are worried about the presence of unvaccinated children in Kindergarten. De Ridder explained why a vaccination obligation for young children in Kindergarten is not a good strategy to curb the declining vaccination rates and address young parents’ concerns. Rather, Kindergarten offers a good opportunity to make a call on solidarity with other children to increase the vaccination rate in Kindergarten.
