A mother in Louisiana is prepared to sue a local school district for vaccinating her underaged child without parental consent.
“There’s a lawsuit brewing in Jefferson Parish over a teenager who received the COVID-19 vaccine at school without his parent’s consent.
Jennifer Ravain, of Kenner, says her 16-year-old son received the vaccine at East Jefferson High School on Wednesday without her consent,” reports the local CBS affiliate.
“The egregious and reckless actions of Ochsner and East Jefferson High school went well beyond any legal and moral bounds and at a minimum, constitute a battery upon the minor child. Their actions should shock the conscience of all citizens of Louisiana,” said the woman’s attorney.
“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,” said a statement from the clinic.
