Tennessee Officials Clarify Minor Vaccination Stance
This week Tennessee officials made it clear that parental consent would have to be given before any Covid vaccinations are given to minor children. Joint Government Operations Committee Chairmen Kerry Roberts and John Ragan making that announcement during a meeting of the same legislative panel that last month grilled Department of Health officials — among them, then-vaccine chief Michelle Fiscus. She was soon after fired from her post. Roberts stated the following…they have not discouraged Tennesseans from being vaccinated nor discouraged Tennesseans from having their children vaccinated,” Roberts also stated that it has been widely misrepresented that all children’s vaccines have come to a halt…but the truth is Tennessee’s efforts on childhood vaccinations are unchanged. The only exception is administering a COVID-19 vaccination without parental consent. They also have requested that vaccine marketing aimed at minors be stopped.
