A 2017 law mandated children enrolled in Italian schools receive 10 different vaccines, the Times wrote, in "response to a worrisome decline in vaccinations nationwide and a measles outbreak that same year".
The law is part of Italy's drive to increase vaccination rates to be in line with the World Health Organisation's target of 95% - enough to prevent diseases spreading while allowing children whose immune systems are too compromised for vaccinating to go without.
