We are moving to Australia soon and I am wondering any links you can share where I can find out vaccine laws? My youngest is not vaccinated am I going to run into any problems?

Vaccination is not compulsory here.  To my knowledge, with things like school or day care, or applying for government benefits, you simply have to submit a form or a stat dec to the effect that you have no vaccinated for whatever reason: religious belief, personal objection, etc.

If you want funding for childcare you'll need a conscientious objector form from a GP

As far as I know it's not compulsary, but it is required in many childcare centres (they may not allow your child to attend without either a stat dec approved from the Government that excludes you from having to vaccinate your child), and also most state schools (I'd assume private as well, but I can't say I know). You also may not be able to receive certain benefits or childcare rebates if you don't vaccinate.
