Mzansi reacts to reports that claims children don’t need their parents’ consent to get vaccinated

(Source: - @danielmarven)

The news broke out that children don’t need their parents’ consent to get the COVID-19 vaccination. This has caused an uproar from different parents as they feel they know what’s best for their kids and not the government. As they’ve been there for them all the way even pre-birth. Parents feel that they’ve been able to keep their kids safe from illness and they had to choose which immunization shots that their offspring took to not get sick. There has been a lot of uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 vaccine, even worse when many people have been complaining about immense side effects that are associated with it. 

Now, this makes parenthood tougher as they don’t know what they have to do to voice out their concerns with regards to the jab. Meanwhile, some parents have been excited about what’s ahead following the announcement that their kids between 12 to 17-years-old will get their chance to be vaccinated. This is part of the government’s way of curving the high spread of Coronavirus within the country. As the vaccine rollout has been happening in the past couple of months now and they’re aiming at getting at least 20 percent of the country jabbed. However, there are still parents that feel the whole vaccine drive isn’t part of their children’s lives. Which means they won’t be seen at vaccination centres with their kids.

Many parents still feel that their kids are not at high risk of contracting the virus and even falling ill too with COVID-19. Nonetheless, the health department has stated that vaccinating students will decrease the increasing number of absenteeism at schools and even lower the outbreak of the virus. 

Let’s take a look at some comments from parents on this trending matter.

@LawyerHrt1 said, “Parents don’t own children… believe it or not, it’s true.”

@SueJJoshua1 said, “Touch my child with that poison and I’ll become a hitman. The ev*l side will come out 100%.”

@jahwilltheOG said, “Look at it this way, does one need their parents’ consent to have rights?” 

@Khutzin5 said, “This is no longer about the pandemic anymore, it’s now personal. I keep wondering what’s in this vaccine that makes them force it upon us so much!”
