A mother was left stunned and outraged this week when she was made aware of her son receiving a Covid-19 vaccine at his high school without her consent.
Jennifer Ravain – the mother of a 16-year-old student at East Jefferson High School in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana – found out about the “nightmare” scenario on Wednesday, which was when an Oschner mobile vaccination clinic was at the school to vaccinate the teenagers.
Somehow, she says, her son was able to sign the parental consent form himself without anyone notifying her before he received his jab.
Allowing the minor to receive the Covid vaccine without parental consent directly violates the state guidelines, which require a parent or guardian to sign off on the experimental jab before it can be administered to ANYONE who is under the age of 18. The policy is clearly stated as such on the Louisiana Department of Health’s website.
G. Shelly Maturin, the attorney representing Ravain, called out both the school as well as the vaccine clinic for their ‘lawless behavior’ that has created a “nightmare” situation. Maturin also claims that multiple other underage students were also permitted to receive the experimental vaccine without parental consent.
He wrote in a statement:
“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.”
Maturin says he’s examining every avenue to hold the vaccine clinic and the district accountable for their egregious actions.
The health care provider who administered the shots at the school, Ochsner Health System, apologized for their employees who ignored the protocols they had in place when vaccinating students at East Jefferson High School. They also confirmed that the incident took place at one of their mobile vaccine clinics that was part of a school vaccination event on October 21, 2021.
According to 4WWL, A spokesperson from Ochsner said the following:
“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
