Before the COVID vaccines were available for small children one Democrat run city laid the ground work in late 2020 to vaccinate children without parental consent.
In 2020, the Washington DC Council vote 12 to 1 in favor of vaccinated children without consent and would also prohibit a parent from being told about the vaccination.
From WUSA 9 a local CBS affiliate:
The bill would give kids as young as 11 years old the green light to get a vaccination without parental consent if a doctor recommends it. The doctor would also determine if the child meets a certain standard of “informed consent” before administering the vaccine.
To prevent the parents from knowing, health providers would be required to bill insurers directly and send vaccination records to the school.
New Jersey, New York, and Minnesota all have either passed legislation or have bills moving through the legislator that would allow minors as young as 12 to consent to COVID shots without their parents knowledge.
From the New York Times:
Last fall, the District of Columbia Council voted to allow children as young as 11 to get recommended vaccines without parental consent. The New Jersey and New York legislatures have bills pending that would allow children as young as 14 to consent to vaccines; Minnesota has one that would permit some children as young as 12 to consent to Covid shots.
The Biden Administration is racing to vaccinate children however, other countries are being more cautious.
In Mexico, the president said he’s not going to be held hostage by pharmaceutical companies and said there is no plan to vaccinate anyone under 18.
Even the new police state emerging in Australia is holding off on vaccinated younger children. Health Officials down under were concerned that the clinical trials group for ages 5-11 were, “I must say, rather small.” The Aussie’s chief medical officer, Paul Kelly said that he is going to see how things shake out in the USA before making any decisions.
Meanwhile, back in the USA California is making the vaccine mandatory for any child wishing to attend public school.
