" Children between the ages of 12 and 17 can get vaccinated from 20 October.
Crisp says they can visit any private or public facility."
We always consent for the common vaccines like measles, polio, now comes Covid no consent needed!!! They should not vaccinate our kids at schools without our consent.
So in SA a child under the age of 18 needs parental consent by way of signatures from parents because they are deemed minors but now they can just go ahead and get a vaccine without proper consent. No medical facility will do any medical procedure on any child under the age of 18 without parental consent. This is just too bizarre for words.
According to section 129 of the Childrens Act 38 of 2005, a child may consent to his or her own medical treatment provided that he or she is over the age of 12 years and is of sufficient maturity and decisional capacity to understand the various implications of the treatment including the risks and benefits thereof
Many South African parents voted you into power to represent us not control us and our human rights, like hell will my children make any choices under the age of 18. Start with all the children in the families of the people Making these decisions. Might I add my children have had covid two months ago. And they were fine! The doctor said it was a viral bug, until I got symptoms and tested positive and we had to the test the kids. I will stand for my children and all children this will not go down lightly in South Africa, you're going to make some enemies out of alot of parents.
We as parents are told we dont need to give consent, yet we are the parents feeding, clothing, providing and putting a roof over our kids heads...If for any reason your kid falls ill because of the vaccine will those who gave it be held accountable or will the parent need to sit with a sick child.. As a parent you need to sit and have a talk with your kids and explain to them what consent is, since our rights as parents are being stripped from us...Teach them about the possible side effects...And if they say NO then NO means NO!
