The Diphtheria-Tetanus-Polio (DTP) vaccination is compulsory. When enrolling, a certificate will be required to verify this.
In July 2007 the Tuberculosis (BCG) vaccine was declared to no longer be obligatory except under certain criteria.
Note: Some schools may still operate to the pre-July 2007 rulings which meant that it was obligatory except for contra-indication or if after two injections the test is still negative. The child simply has to have regular tests to check that the negativity still holds. Homeopathic doctors (who prefer not to vaccinate for BCG) may issue a certificate stating that the child cannot have the BCG. This is acceptable to schools.
