The issue of vaccines appears to be causing a stir in our country; every day, we hear more updates about vaccines, which always leave people believing that the government is indirectly forcing people to vaccinate.Not so long ago, the whole country was upside down after Limpopo MEC of health, DR Phophi Ramathuba, said that all residents of Limpopo who were not vaccinated would not be given access to public health services as they endanger other people's lives at hospitals. Yesterday, another upsetting update about vaccinations was released by the Acting Health Director-General, Dr Nicholas Crisp, Read.
As the vaccination process is still running, the government has just announced the good news that the vaccination process for children between the ages of 12 and 17 will start rolling out on October 20, 2021. As you know, there are children who contradict their parents when it comes to decision-making. There are parents who are against vaccination whereas their children are in favor of it. And there are children who are against vaccination while their parents are against it.
Since the government is aware that people have different views about vaccines, it has given everyone power to make their own decisions on whether to vaccinate or not, without anyone’s consent. Yesterday, the Acting Health Director-General announced that children between the ages of 12 and 17 can be vaccinated without their parents' consent. This means that parents have no power to force their children not to vaccinate or to vaccinate.
After this was posted, many people were left in shock, saying that the government wanted to forcefully vaccinate children or to brainwash them into vaccinating. Parents are no happy at all about this, See some of their reactions from social media below:
Children below the age 18 are not mature enough to make concrete decisions. The government should stop being selfish and let parents be in charge of their own children. According to the law, it is illegal to be in a sexual relationship with a child under the age of 18 because they are not ready to make informed decisions. This shows that the government knows that children under 18 years old are not mature enough, so they shouldn’t be given power to control their own health. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it is a good idea for this age group to be vaccinated without their parents’ consent? Comment below.
