Default New DC Law Would Give Vaccine Decisions to 11-year-Olds, Cut Parents Out

New DC Law Would Give Vaccine Decisions to 11-year-Olds, Cut Parents Out
WASHINGTON—The nation’s capital city is looking likely to pass legislation that would allow children as young as 11 years old to make their own decisions on receiving vaccines, without parental consent or knowledge.
Bill 23-171 would allow for children as young as 11 to consent to all vaccines on the government schedule. At the same time, the school, health care provider, and the parent’s private insurance would conceal the child’s vaccination from parents or guardians—who would have no knowledge of the vaccination unless the child told them.
The bill states that the minor must be “capable of meeting the informed consent standard,” which would be determined by a physician.
The legislation was first introduced on March 5, 2019, with a public hearing held on June 26, 2019. The bill then sat until Oct. 7 this year, when the four-person health committee revised it, passed it, and brought it up to the full council for a vote on Oct. 20. It passed resoundingly (12–1) and now heads back for a second reading and final vote on Nov. 10 before landing on the mayor’s desk for a signature.
Council member Trayon White, the lone dissenting voice during the Oct. 20 vote, said his objection is to the removal of parents from the decision.
“For me, it’s not an issue of the vaccination, it’s an issue of the council voting to circumvent the inclusion of a parent making the decision about their child,” White said. “Medical practitioners, schools, and others should not be permitted to coerce or press minors into procedures that are capable of causing injury or death, behind their parents back.”
Talwalkar said that of the 123,000 school students in the district’s public schools, 58 students had medical exemptions and 179 had religious exemptions from some or all vaccines. The new bill would be able to circumvent a parental request for their child to opt out of a vaccine based on a religious exemption and conceal that from the parent...

Link to Bill
BILL SUMMARY - As introduced, this bill permits a minor of any age to consent to receive a vaccine where the vaccination is recommended by the United States Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. It also establishes that if a minor is able to comprehend the need for, the nature of, and any significant risks inherent in the medical care then informed consent is established.
......and provided in accordance with ACIP’s recommended vaccinations schedule; to establish how a minor may be deemed meeting the informed consent standard; to require the Department of Health to produce age-appropriate alternative vaccine information sheets; to prohibit an insurer from sending an Explanation of Benefits; to allow a minor access to immunization records; and to require the physician to submit the immunization record directly to the minor’s school if the parent is utilizing a religious exemption or is opting out of receiving the Human Papillomavirus vaccine.
OH and just so we're clear this bill was introduced in March.... 2019,
some gov't hacks simply wants Parents OUT of the picture and the state control children (everyone) cradle to grave. "Rights?" "what chew takin bout?"

You have the right to do everything the gov't tells you to.

For those who are thinking, That's Just those crazies in the city of Washington D.C., here are a few other articles where politicians are proposing laws/rules along the same line...

Hope is the dream of the waking man.

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
