VACCINE| Children Between 12-17 Years Old Will Be Allowed to Vaccinate Without Parent’s Permission


Our country appears to be enraged over the issue of vaccines, with new information about vaccines being released every day, leading many to believe that the government is implicitly pressuring individuals to vaccinate, which is not the case. When the Limpopo MEC of health, DR Phophi Ramathuba, announced that all citizens of Limpopo who are not vaccinated will not be allowed access to public health facilities because they jeopardize other people's lives in health facilities, the entire country was turned upside down. Dr Nicholas Crisp, the Acting Director-General of Health, provided yet another disturbing update on immunizations yesterday, this time regarding the flu vaccine. Read more.

While the vaccination program is still in progress, the authorities has just declared that the vaccination operation for youngsters between the ages of 12 and 17 will begin on October 20, 2021, which is a welcome development. As you are aware, there are children that defy their parents' decisions when it comes to making choices. Parental opposition to vaccination is common, despite the fact that their children are generally in favor of the practice. Furthermore, there are children who are opposed to vaccination while their parents are also opposed to it.

Because the government recognizes that people hold differing opinions regarding vaccines, it has granted everyone the authority to make their own decisions about whether or not to vaccinate, without the need for anyone's agreement. Children between the ages of 12 and 17 can now be vaccinated despite their parents' approval, according to the Acting Director-General of Health, who made the announcement yesterday. In other words, parents do not have the authority to compel their children to get vaccinated or to refuse to get vaccinated. 

Many people were taken aback when this was released, claiming that the government was attempting to force children to be vaccinated or to brainwash them into doing so through brainwashing. Parents are not pleased about this at all, as evidenced by the following replies on social media: 



Children under the age of 18 are not developed enough to make choices that have long-term consequences. The government should quit being self-centered and instead allow parents to be in charge of their own children. According to the legislation, having a sexual relationship with a child under the age of 18 is prohibited since they are not mature enough to make rational decisions. This demonstrates that the government recognizes that children under the age of 18 are not competent enough to make decisions about their own health, and that they should not be granted the ability to do so. What are your thoughts on this subject matter? What do you think about this age group being vaccinated without their parents' consent? Do you think it is a good idea? Please leave a comment below.
