The teenage boy was given the Pfizer shot on October 20, at East Jefferson High School in Metairie, Louisiana.
Despite the obvious legal request: “A parent’s signature is required for anyone 17 or younger who wants a COVID-19 vaccine,” according to the Louisiana Department of Health.
“What we have is a parent who has had her parental rights stolen,” G. Shelly Maturin II, a lawyer representing the family stated.
The boy initially thought he was signing up to get a vaccine at a later date, and planned to discuss whether to get a jab with his mom, the family’s lawyer said. When he learned the shots were happening at that time, he felt pressure and got one.
Ochsner acknowledges that a mistake happened and that the boy did not receive parental consent.
“While we firmly believe in vaccinating adolescents to keep them safe from COVID-19, this should be done only with parental consent. Our team has been notified that a student was vaccinated without proper parental consent at a school vaccination event on October 20, 2021. We have procedures in place to ensure that all policies are followed; however, in this instance, this did not occur. We have taken immediate action to review our on-site vaccination policies and to ensure that these policies will be strictly enforced moving forward,” Dr. Robert Hart, Ochsner’s chief medical officer, told The Epoch Times via email.
“As a leading healthcare provider in this community, we value the trust that parents put in us to care for their children, and we are revising our school vaccination program to ensure that this does not happen again. We are in communication with the parent who brought this to our attention. We offer our sincere regret and apology for any distress this has caused,” he added.
“This kind of garbage is going on around the country and it needs to stop, so I think a message needs to be sent,” Maturin said.
“We believe that broad participation in vaccinations reduces the risk of COVID-19 transmission and is essential to keeping our schools and community safe and healthy. Jefferson Parish Schools has partnered with multiple healthcare partners to provide vaccination opportunities to eligible employees and students since vaccines first became available. Our standard operating procedures include obtaining written consent from a parent or legal guardian prior to a student receiving the vaccine during an event conducted at one of our schools,” the district said.
“We will continue to work with Ochsner Health and our other healthcare partners to ensure vaccination events conducted on our campuses follow this process.”
