Vaccine Alert: Schools Not Listening
A furious Ohio mother says her 7-year-old son, who has had problems with medications, was vaccinated for swine flu at school against her wishes. Kim Lutheran works as a nurse and says her son, Matthew, has had bad reactions to medicine. So, she says she signed for no consent on a vaccination form and then circled her intentions with a black marker to make things clear to the boys public school in the Toledo suburb of Oregon. Lutheran says she learned Matthew still received a shot on Monday. She says the local health department must be held accountable.
Deputy Health Commissioner Larry Vasko says his agency has responded by changing the consent forms, telling parents not to sign or return them if they do not want their children vaccinated. Click here to read the full article Ohio Boy Given H1N1 Vaccine Against Moms Wishes.
