A mom in Chicago is furious after her teen daughter received several vaccinations at school without her consent.
Michelle Miller says she believed a form she signed gave her 16-year-old daughter’s school permission to conduct nothing more than a routine sports physical.
But student Noelle Miller ended up receiving multiple vaccinations, one for chicken pox, Hepatitis A, meningitis and the sexually transmitted disease HPV, none of which Noelle’s mom had consented to, save the chicken pox shot.
“When I looked at that I flipped out,” Miller said regarding her daughter’s immunization records.
A source inside Chicago Public Schools says the mother did indeed sign a form consenting to the vaccines, according to CBS 2 Chicago, but the mom disputes that saying she only signed up for the state required immunizations.
“Only for the state requirements for a Chicago Public Schools student and only chicken pox fell in that category,” Miller said.
A spokesperson for the Norwegian-American Hospital, who ran the care van that administered the shots, couldn’t comment to CBS 2 on the specific case, but said it requires a consent form for every vaccine administered.
Illinois law also allows minors 12 and older to consent to HPV vaccines, but Noelle says she was never asked permission.
Miller’s concerns over the excess vaccinations are sound.
Vaccines geared to combat the Human Papillomavirus, Gardasil and Cervarix, have been blamed for a number of debilitating health effects, including headaches, strokes, seizures, auto-immune problems and a number of deaths. (CDC data between June 2006 and December 2008 admits to 34 deaths, but maintains “there was no common pattern to the deaths that would suggest they were caused by the vaccine.”)
“The July 2013 U.S. federal government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System shows 30,674 adverse reactions reported after Gardasil vaccinations, with 963 recipients being left disabled and 140 dead,” according to the Illinois Review.
The prevalence of adverse events led people from several countries, including France, Japan, India and Spain, to file criminal lawsuits against HPV vaccine manufacturers. Innumerable Gardasil horror stories can also be found at the website SaneVax.org.
The distraught Chicago mom says she’s waiting for an explanation from her child’s school and the school board.
