That's not on, if true!
Do they ask parental permission these days?

A consent form and information leaflet provided by the

Parents will also be provided with a contact number
for the healthcare team in case of any queries. Forms
should be returned by the deadline agreed with the
team. You may be asked to collect these forms from
parents on behalf of the healthcare team or it may be
done electronically.


This is the link.....

Re: Flu vaccinations are early this year.

Tessa, this link does not surprise me, the WHO have made lots of mistakes over Covid. It seems that anybody with a bit of power is wanting to control all of our lives and using our fear of Covid to do so! Basically they are saying " If you want your child to go to school, then whilst they are in school we will make important decisions about their care whilst they are with us..... so they will be vaccinated.
If a child does have a vaccination & develops a severe reaction that may kill them, I think it is unlikely that the parents would win a case, if they took the WHO to court!
I believe it is a sad fact that Covid is being used to control the people...... not just to save their lives, but so the powers that be can regain the control they used to have!

The link I posted was about rules in the UK, but if we are honest, can we believe anything we read on the internet, because we can always find another link that says the complete opposite?

Apricot, I think you'll find you have to pay for Flu jabs at all pharmacies but they do vary in prices and I think over 65s get it free.

That is disgusting - and there would be big trouble if anyone vaccinated a child of mine without consent!

Apricot, if you and your other half are over 65 then you are eligible for a free flu jab at either your GP's surgery or at a local pharmacy. If, like us, you have it done at a pharmacy, you have to provide your details to the pharmacist (who then passes this on to your GP to say you've had the jab).
