UK: Children Could Override Parents’ Decision About Coronavirus Vaccine, Vaccine Minister Says

Whatever it takes.

Children have the same abilities as adults.

The only thing is that they can’t have sex. Other than that, they can do things like secretly get injected with hormones, or secretly get injected with a deadly vax to protect them from the Mu variant.

I mean from the Alpha and Delta variants.

The Guardian:

Healthy 12- to 15-year-olds could override their parents’ decision on vaccination in the right circumstances, a minister has said, as the UK government prepares to overrule advice and extend jabs to younger teens.

Nadhim Zahawi, the vaccines minister, said parents of healthy 12- to 15-year-olds would be asked for consent if coronavirus jabs were approved for their children – expected to be pushed through by ministers this week.

But he added that children could override their parents’ wishes “if they’re deemed to be competent to make that decision, with all the information available”.

He told Times Radio: “What you essentially do is make sure that the clinicians discuss this with the parents, with the teenager, and if they are then deemed to be able to make a decision that is competent, then that decision will go in the favour of what the teenager decides to do.”

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) decided against backing the move to extend the vaccine offer to younger teens on health grounds alone, since Covid-19 presents such a low risk to that age bracket. However, that decision is likely to be overruled by the UK’s chief medical officers, who will take wider considerations into account – such as disruption to education.

The JCVI said it doesn’t make sense to vaccinate kids because they’re not at risk, but that decision is likely to be overruled by the UK’s chief medical officers because unvaccinated kids somehow means a disruption to their education? What? What?

Have we forgotten why there’s been a disruption in their education?
