Mother Says LA School Vaccinated Child Without Her Knowledge or Consent
Children at Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) were apparently vaccinated against the coronavirus without the consent or knowledge of parents, according to a mother.
“The lady that gave him the shot and signed the paper told my son, ‘Please don’t say anything. I don’t want to get in trouble,’” Maribel Duarte, the mother of a 13-year-old boy who was clandestinely vaccinated, told NBC4.
According to Duarte, her son was offered pizza in exchange for the shot.
But attorney Jennifer Kennedy, who is fighting the school district’s vaccine mandate in court, contends children cannot consent to receiving a vaccine, saying, “you [LAUSD] don’t have the legal authority.”
According to NBC4, “LAUSD says student matters are confidential and wouldn’t comment specifically, but did say its ‘safe schools to safe steps incentive program’ is meant to ensure several steps are in place for vaccinated students to receive prizes.”
Duarte, while being pro-vaccine and vaccinated herself, says she was uncomfortable with the move because her son “has problems with asthma and allergy problems.”
“It hurt to know he got a shot without my permission, without knowing and without signing any papers for him to get the shot,” Duarte told NBC4. . . .
LAUSD Interim Superintendent Meagan K. Reilly said in the September mandate announcement, “The science is clear – vaccinations are an essential part of protection against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and requiring eligible students to be vaccinated is the strongest way to protect our school community.”
