The covid vaccines are making headlines again, as you can see. This time it’s about the covid vaccine for kids with no parents’ approval. 

It’s been just reported that according to the latest reports, a federal judge temporarily blocked a Washington, D.C., law from going into effect that would have allowed children as young as 11 years old to receive covid vaccination without parental consent.

Judge Trevor McFadden ruled that the Minor Consent for Vaccinations Amendment Act of 2020 (MCA) “targets religious parents.”

“States and the District are free to encourage individuals — including children — to get vaccines.”

This is what McFadden wrote in his ruling.

“But they cannot transgress on the [National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act] Congress created. And they cannot trample on the Constitution.”

The ruling addressed two separate lawsuits that have been filed in July.

“In one complaint, a group of parents with children enrolled in city public or charter schools argued Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser could not enforce the law because it subverts the right and duty of parents to make informed decisions about whether their children should receive vaccinations.”

This is what the Washington Examiner reported.
