After the Seimas (parliament) failed to adopt legislation authorizing mandatory vaccinations, an order made by former Minister of Health Vytenis Andriukaitis instructing not to accept unvaccinated children to kindergarten extablishments will take effect in 1 January, 2016. Minister of Health Rimantė Šalaševičiūtė says that the order will only apply to newly accepted children.

Rimantė Šalaševičiūtė said that “Unvaccinated children can not be admitted to kindergarten education establishments. This applies to both private and public ones. <...> Those who are already attending schools will not be asked to leave. When a child comes to kindergarten, he will have to provide a doctor's certificate. If, in that column, at the part about vaccines, it will be written that a child has not been vaccinated against polio, measles and rubella, he or she will not be admitted to preschool.”
