BERLIN (Reuters) - The German constitutional court upheld the country's measles vaccine mandate for children on Thursday, ruling against a challenge brought by parents.

In its final decision on the matter, the court in Karlsruhe said that while the mandate interfered with the rights of children and their parents, this was justified due to the high infection risk with measles and potential for serious illness.

The measles vaccine mandate came into effect in March 2020 and requires all children to be vaccinated or have already recovered from a course of the disease in order to attend kindergarten or child care facilities.

Exceptions are allowed only if the child has a medical intolerance for the vaccine.

TikTok is facing a £27 million ($29 million) fine after the U.K.'s Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) provisionally found that the company breached child data protection laws for a two year period. The alleged breach happened from May 2018 through July 2020, with the ICO noting that the company "may have" processed data of children under the age of 13 without parental consent. Additionally, it said the company may have "failed to provide proper information to its users in a concise, transparent and easily understood way" and "processed special category data, without legal grounds to do so."
