As if feeling like I'm in the twilight zone.... IF you do not vaccinate, and IF you send your kids to public schools, let them go to the mall, let them out of your site for more than 2 seconds, etc.. and cannot be with them - hire a body guard for your child.

It's beyond anything I can even come to grips with...


Out of curiousity - given that vaccination is considered surgery as it penetrates the skin, if a child was vaccinated without parental consent (or guardianship) and non-emancipated or over the age of 18 - one would have to assume (wouldn't they?) legal action could follow - in addition - I still like the idea of charges with assault with a deadly weapon. (I moved a little towards WMD).

They still can't get a vaccine until they are 18 without my permission.

I can't remember what state it was (and I was wondering how they'd get around the parental/guardian consent) but were talking about if girls wanted Gardasil and were too afraid to talk to their parents given the assumption of promiscuity that they would give it to them without consent.

Sorry, it was UK, not US: http://www.biomedcentral.com/content/pdf/1471-2458-7-20.pdf


From what I've been able to gather so far in the US

PS - Thanks Mihele - this made me go a little further and find my state's immunization registry - which reminded me that I need to opt my kids out of...

I think this just gives us one more reason to really discuss and educate our children on why we make certain the decisions we make

If you call Edda at VRAN she'll tell you about the family in BC whose daughter was vaccinated against their wishes at the school. Basically the public health nurse in the school scared her into choosing to be vaccinated with HBV despite a letter on file saying the parents did NOT consent to the vaccination.
