School Vaccinated Two Students Without Parental Consent In Exchange For Pizza, Told Them Not To Say Anything

You simply cannot make this stuff up.

A school in Los Angeles, which bears the name “Barack Obama Global Prep Academy,” is accused of disturbing actions against students as young as 13 years old.

Parents say the school administered the COVID-19 vaccine to two students without the consent of their parents. Administrators allegedly offered them pizza in exchange.

The mother of a 13-year-old student says her son brought home a vaccine card and was told not to say anything by the person who administered the shot.

“I should have been involved,” Maribel Duarte told the local news outlet KNBC.

“The lady that gave him the shot and signed the paper was the one that told my son, ‘Please, do not say anything. I don’t warm to get in trouble.'”

“It hurted to know he got a shot without my permission, without me even knowing or even signing any papers for him to get the shot,” she said.

Watch the news clip:

ANCHOR: Some families are questioning the vaccine mandate for Los Angeles schools. And now, at least two parents are accusing the school of giving their children the vaccine without their consent. NBC4’s John Cadiz Klemack has the story from South L.A.

MOTHER: I should have been involved.

JOHN CADIZ KLEMACK, KNBC-TV REPORTER: Maribel Duarte says her 13-year-old son, a student at the Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in south L.A. brought home this vaccine card after having accepted the COVID-19 vaccine in school. She said he said yes when someone offered it in exchange for pizza.

MOTHER: The lady that gave him the shot and signed the paper was the one that told my son, ‘Please, do not say anything. I don’t warm to get in trouble.’

REPORTER: LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) said student matters are confidential and wouldn’t comment specifically, but did say its “Safe Schools to Safe Steps” incentive program is meant to ensure several steps are in place for vaccinated students to receive prizes. Maribel Duarte said she is not against the vaccine, she’s vaccinated herself, but it’s different with her son. He has problems with asthma and allergy problems.

JENNIFER KENNEDY, ATTORNEY: But here’s the problem: Kids in California cannot consent to the vaccination.

KLEMACK: Attorney Jennifer Kennedy has been following the two cases against the LAUSD vaccine mandate currently making its way through court. Both are ultimately seeking an end to that mandate.

KENNEDY: The LAUSD does not have the power to add a vaccine shot to the California schools’ schedule.

KLEMACK: California school vaccines are handled through the state’s Department of Public Health and created into law through the state legislature…

MOTHER: It hurted to know he got a shot without my permission, without me even knowing or even signing any papers for him to get the shot.
