- Boys and girls as young as 12 can be offered the vaccines without your knowledge by their doctor or school nurse.
- They may use scare tactics like telling your children if they don’t get the vaccines, they can get sick and die.
Bottom line: Your child could be given shots and you will never know. This also means that you no longer have access to your child’s full medical records… you will only be able to request PARTS of your child’s heath records once they turn 12.
Merck’s own site on the vaccine, Gardasil.com, explicitly warns:
Only a doctor or health care professional can decide if GARDASIL is right for you or your child.”
Since when did a 12 year old become a doctor?
We do not think even the most mature 12 year old is ready to make a medical decision with potential long term health implications.
Thank you State of California for making the wise decision that 6th graders are competent enough to read and properly digest this information, to fully understand the risks and benefits, and to make an informed consent decision. This is another example of “a random act of stupidity”.
If the child has a negative reaction, will the doctor, school nurse, school district, state of California, or Merck care for the child and pay the bills that come along with that scenario? Of course not!
It will be left to the parents (who had no say in vaccinating their child) to try to figure out what went wrong (since they may not even know their child received the shots) and then to care for their child, potentially for the rest of their life. Since parents will have all the responsibility, parents should be allowed to make all the decisions!
