A Louisiana mother is threatening a lawsuit after her son was vaccinated at school without her permission.
Jennifer Ravain said her son, 16, was given the jab by an Oschner mobile vaccination clinic at East Jefferson High School on Oct. 20 — without any parental consent, the Daily Signal reports.
The mom’s attorney, G. Shelly Maturin, called it a lawless nightmare that violates state law requiring a parent’s signature for anyone under 18 years old to get the jab.
“The egregious and reckless actions of Ochsner and East Jefferson High school went well beyond any legal and moral bounds and at a minimum, constitute a battery upon the minor child,” Maturin told WWLTV. “Their actions should shock the conscience of all citizens of Louisiana.”
Ochsner Health System apologized for not following proper protocols and insisted it wouldn’t happen again.
“A lawsuit will be filed shortly,” Maturin told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Jefferson Parish Public Schools released a state late Friday night:
“Today, we were made aware of an incident that occurred this week during a vaccine event held by Ochsner Health, whereby a student received a vaccine without parental consent. Ochsner Health officials have informed us that they are conducting a thorough investigation of the vaccine event to ensure this was an isolated incident and does not occur again.
We believe that broad participation in vaccinations reduces the risk of COVID-19 transmission and is essential to keeping our schools and community safe and healthy. Jefferson Parish Schools has partnered with multiple healthcare partners to provide vaccination opportunities to eligible employees and students since vaccines first became available. Our standard operating procedures include obtaining written consent from a parent or legal guardian prior to a student receiving the vaccine during an event conducted at one of our schools.
We will continue to work with Ochsner Health and our other healthcare partners to ensure vaccination events conducted on our campuses follow this process.”
