The new decision by the British authorities to legally vaccinate children aged 12-15 years without the consent of their parents, if the child himself agrees with the procedure, has caused a lot of controversy.
On Wednesday 15 September, UK Health Insurance (Υπηρεσία Ασφάλειας Υγείας του Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου) unveiled a new protocol for a vaccination campaign in schools.
According to the RT report, parents will be asked to sign a document with their consent before vaccination begins, however, “children may want to get vaccinated themselves and will be able to make their own decisions about vaccination (give consent),” even if this is contrary to the wishes of their parents or guardians.
That is, the child himself wants to be vaccinated, and if it has been established that he is fully aware and understands the procedure, the medical staff will proceed with his vaccination, regardless of the opinion of the parents or guardians of the minor.
The legislative document goes on to say that if a parent “objects to the child being vaccinated,” the medical teams will do their best to convince them. However, by law, a parent cannot “reverse a child’s decision to vaccinate”.
According to the government, medical units have already begun work on a plan for mass vaccinations in schools.
The British authorities have not yet approved vaccination of young children (under 12 years of age) and are still evaluating the relevant data. However, all indications are that the “shot” for young children will soon be approved.
