The law would cover any vaccine approved by the FDA.
A California state senator proposed a law allowing kids 12 and up to get a vaccine without permission from a parent or guardian.
The law covers any vaccine approved by the FDA.
It shocked me to learn about other states and D.C. already allow this:
Alabama allows such decisions at age 14, Oregon at 15, Rhode Island and South Carolina at 16, according to Sen. Scott Wiener, a Democrat from San Francisco who is proposing the change. Only Washington, D.C., has a lower limit, at age 11.
Wiener argued that California already allows those 12 and up to consent to the Hepatitis B and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines, and to treatment for sexually transmitted infections, substance abuse and mental health disorders.
“Giving young people the autonomy to receive life-saving vaccines, regardless of their parents’ beliefs or work schedules, is essential for their physical and mental health,” he said. “It’s unconscionable for teens to be blocked from the vaccine because a parent either refuses or cannot take their child to a vaccination site.”
Minors in California can already “access various forms of healthcare without parental consent, eg: HPV & hep B vaccines, abortion care, birth control, mental healthcare, domestic violence-related care.”
Wiener described those who oppose the bill as “fringe anti-vaxxers.”
No. No, sir, it’s about allowing adults to inject our children with medicines without our permission.
Gov. Newsome imposed the nation’s first COVID vaccine mandate for school kids last October.
We already saw one case of a child getting a vaccine at a California school without permission. The lady bribed the 13-year-old with pizza. She also begged him not to tell his mom.DONATE
