Vaccination is not compulsory/mandatory in Sweden.
The Swedish population have a strong awareness of the importance of personal freedom and individual rights.
Sweden has less vaccines in the ‘childhood vaccination program’ compared to United States.
For Military Service vaccines are mandatory.
We see a strong pro-vaccination push from the Government and the media, and there is great pressure being exerted by the national health authorities toward a greater compliance to the vaccination programs.
The policy is that if the parents disagree on vaccinating their child, there will be no vaccination. This is the same practice as in Denmark.
I Norway the law just changes so the parent that want vaccination will get their will.
The compliance to the childhood vaccination schedule amounts quite high in children.
There are no requirements for children to have had any vaccines in order to enter kindergarten or school.
The report can be made by the patients or by health workers. Adverse events of vaccines must be reported to National Medical Agency: Läkemedelsverket.
The EFVV (European Forum for Vaccine Vigilance) is an alliance of member-organisations and individual members from 25 European countries. Our member-organisations consist of consumer groups and pro-choice groups whose members in turn include medical professionals and scientists. Their combined memberships exceed 100,000. We call on all Europeans to stand together in a demand for a united vaccination policy based on freedom of choice and informed consent. We believe that mandatory vaccination is not only a serious risk but a violation of human rights and dignity. We therefore demand transparency and caution as well as recognition and concern for the many vaccine-injured in Europe and beyond.
