A father (and mother) from Wetaskwin, AB were very angry when their son was vaccinated for HPV without parental consent.
Question re legislated mandatory vaccination schedules or the child cannot attend school (California, some other US states, Ontario, Alberta, add New Brunswick (?)):
are parents still required to sign a parental consent form, or does the legislation cut the parent(s) out of the process? There is no need for parental consent if the vaccination is demanded by law?
I had a quick look at a couple of the news reports. The Edmonton Journal Opinion piece, in my mind, amounted to a promotion for Gardasil (the Merck HPV vaccine – – there are others, under different names). http://edmontonjournal.com/opinion/columnists/paula-simons-son-of-former-catholic-school-trustee-who-fought-against-hpv-vaccines-was-accidentally-immunized
The school division doing the vaccinations is St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Separate Regional Division #38. I sent them a letter with some of what is known about Gardasil. Not only should they not be vaccinating without parental permission, based on the evidence available, I would not be administering HPV vaccine to ANY child, male OR female. Maybe? the school divisions cannot be faulted if no one TELLS them? That’s you and me!
