Vaccination is not compulsory/mandatory in Denmark.
The Danish population have a strong awareness of the importance of personal freedom and individual rights.
Denmark has less vaccines in the ‘childhood vaccination program’ compared to the other Scandinavian countries like Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Denmark don’t uses vaccine against Rotavirus and there’s no Hep-B vaccine in the multi-vaccine shots. Denmark is the Scandinavian country to use less childhood vaccines.
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 practise as in Sweden.
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.
