Italian children have been told not to turn up to school unless they can prove they have been properly vaccinated.
The deadline follows months of national debate over compulsory vaccination.
Parents risk being fined up to $US560 if they send their unvaccinated children to school. Children under six can be turned away.
The new law came amid a surge in measles cases ‑ but Italian officials say vaccination rates have improved since it was introduced.
