canvax2Controversy has erupted in western Canada after public school nurses reportedly vaccinated a 14-year-old student without her parents’ consent. CBC.ca reports that the Bootsma family of British Columbia is furious and demanding answers after their ninth-grader was pulled out of class one day and coerced into getting the combination DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine without a parental consent form or even parental notification. Dean Bootsma says his daughter became a target of the state after school officials learned that she had not been jabbed like most of the other children in her class, a conscious and deliberate decision that he and his wife made after their other daughter died following routine vaccinations. Believing that their now-14-year-old daughter, who has chosen to remain anonymous, may also have a predisposition to vaccine adverse events, the Bootsmas hoped to take the precautionary route by avoiding vaccines altogether. But these hopes were dashed when faculty at the local public school preyed on the young girl, essentially intimidating her into getting the shot against her will. Speaking to reporters, the girl explained that she was never really given the option to decline the vaccine, even though she was fully aware at the time that her parents did not want her to get vaccinated, of course for her own protection.
