Detroit Child Vaccinated at School Without Parental Consent

by Tiffany in Health & Healing

This news story has me absolutely FUMING and it has become clear that I need to have a discussion with my kids about what they need to do if their school even DARE to try this.

Apparently a 14 year old child in Detroit was suddenly pulled from her class without warning or explanation. They took her to the nurses office and gave her four different vaccine shots. They never asked for parental permission and in fact they ignored a signed directive on file from the girl’s mother to never provide medical care or services for her daughter. They vaccinated the young woman for the flu, meningitis, HPV, and Hep A.  Understandably the mother, Sighle Kinney, was furious and is looking for someone to be held accountable for this travesty. She has made it clear she did not intend for her daughter to receive these vaccines, especially the HPV one. Afterwards her daughter developed a full body rash and missed several days of school.

My three kids attend three different pubic schools. All have a vaccine waiver in their files and written notes saying that they must NEVER be vaccinated. In light of this story though I will be talking with each of my kids about what they are to do if someone does try to vaccinate them on the sly. If any attempts like this were made I would consider it assault and I will tell my kids to view it as such as well. They will be advised to:

  • Scream
  • Kick
  • Run from the room
  • Demand that a parent be called AND the police
  • Tell them that their mother will unleash a can of you know what if they even DARE…

Some may think this is being a little nutso but this kind of government interference cannot be tolerated. I have made a conscious decision to not inject my kids with poison and I am following all the laws for my state whilst I also protect my children. I investigated the vaccine laws before we even decided to move to this state! If anyone tries to supersede my parental authority they are going to have one angry parent on their hands but they are going to have a rabid parent where vaccines are concerned.

Have you prepared your kids, just in case they are faced with this scenario?

    Crazy!  The government (public schools) are going too far now with this insanity.  Thanks for the heads up.  I have two girls in middle school and I will definitely be talking to them about this.

    This makes me irate!  I have exhaustively researched vaccinating and decided to not vaccinate my children.  I have recently moved to Texas and people are very close minded and scared of children who are not vaccinated.  I had a talk with my 9 year old today.  I won’t be able to protect her from ignorant people her whole life so teaching her to be vigilant seems to be the next step.

      I am with ya sista, this kind of stuff makes me angry. It also furthers the distrust of the government and schools. How sad is it when people you children should be learning to respect are the “enemy”. Sad times we live in.

    It seems a little insane that this could happen, considering the public school my daughter attends would not give my daughter tylenol when she had an ear ache… I had to drive 10 miles to the school to give it to her myself… or even antibiotics that were prescribed by the doctor without a specific note. I would have a conniption and probably pull my daughter out of school if I found out this was going on. If I found out it happened to my daughter there would definitely be some legal action taken.

    That is frustrating. Too many parents just believe that vaccines are something kids need to have. I had vaccines, but no longer get flu shots or anything else like that.

    Tiffany, I am so heated right now!  I did not hear about this and I am fuming right along with you.  You already know that you & I share the same philosophies when it comes to this.  You are right when you said that this kind of government interference can not be tolerated.  All I can think about right now is that family and what they must be going through now that they have to live with this violation.  I don’t know what I would do, I can not imagine.

    I have not prepared my children at all, because they are educated at home.  They know that we do not vaccinate, that we have the documentation for it for when they were in school, and the older ones understand why to some extent.  They don’t go anywhere that I would have to worry about this happening but I think its still a good conversation to have with them so that we can reiterate that their bodies belong to them and them only!

    I feel sick.  Ugh.

    That is crazy! I would be livid!

    I have heard SO many incidents of this and this level of assault makes steam come from my ears. I have talked to my kids about it and told them to defend themselves in any means possible and make sure they mention that what they are dishing out is a fraction of what’s going to be coming their way from mom.  At the end of the discussion I decided that on the “vax days” at school; they’re just not going.  This level of assault cannot continue to be tolerated; this warrants severe jail time in my books.

    Wow, this is unbelievable.  It looks like that girl will have a full ride to a college of her choice now.  After lots of research on my own, I vaccinate my children.  But every parent is entitled to their decisions.

    Also, it appears that a hospital (St. John’s) does this in the school.  I am interested to learn the actual facts of the case.  Did the school do this or did the St. John nurse act on her own with a list?  This is shocking.

    I am wondering, to the parents who say they dont vaccinate, does this mean your children have never had an immunization/vaccine? I only wonder because in most places (like TN) families are forced to have this done or their children cannot even attend school. Our school systems have frequently stepped on our toes when it comes to what rights and decisions we can make concerning our own children. My child is diabetic, and apparently I dont know when my child isnt feeling well enough to even stay home, but the school nurses send him home anytime they see fit. We have been to court over this, even when our dr. wrote notes saying it was normal for our son to be feeling this way.(not all the time of course,but he dors have highs and lows) Personally this makes me irate, however it doesnt surprise me this happened, schools have stepped over many lines every where.

      2 of my 3 kids have never had a shot in their lives and they both attend public school. We sign waivers, as is our legal right.

    This is no entirely related, but I am a non-vaccinating mom working as a nurse in a hospital that recently made vaccinations mandatory.  I am 7 months pregnant and do not want my child exposed to the vaccination at all.  Any ideas?
