The German government is proposing making the vaccination of measles mandatory for children and employees of Kindergarten schools.
Speaking on Wednesday, Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel noted that the number of measles infections has risen in recent years.
She proceeded by requesting lawmakers to approve the plan to curb the growing numbers on time.
In March, parents of school-aged pupils will be required to provide proof that indeed their children have received the vaccine.
Failure to comply to remit the necessary documents will see the affected pupils not admitted in the schools.
Parents of older students will be fined as high as 2,500 Euros.
This year alone 400 cases of measles have already been reported, a huge number compared to 543 cases reported last year.
