The Supreme Court of Ukraine concluded that the vaccination of children before taking them to kindergartens is obligatory.
While considering the case No.682/1692/17, the Court decided that the right for education at a kindergarten of a minor, who is a son of the complainant, is temporarily limited - until he gets vaccinated, the epidemiologic situation gets better and the doctors' committee makes a positive conclusion. The mother, the complainant herself did not keep up with the vaccination schedule, as she did not trust the quality of the vaccination; thus, she did not agree to get her son inoculated, too.
The Court came to the conclusion that the private right of a child not to be vaccinated stands against the overall right of the children who were vaccinated and thus meet the requirements to get the pre-school education. The general social interest prevails, for it is justified by the necessity to protect social health. The general right for safety and protection of health is guaranteed by the Constitution of Ukraine.
