Maine children get flu shots at school without parental consent



According to media reports, three students at a school in Maine recently received flu shots without parental consent.

A spokesperson for Northern Light Health, the health organization in charge of vaccinations, said that shooting the children was “without the consent of a fully executed or fully documented.” USA Today reported.

The Sanford School Department said in a statement that Northern Lights personnel did not notice that the parents of the three students did not sign the vaccine form. In one case, the form was signed but crossed out, and the student was shot dead.

The head of the school, Mark Nelson, said: “This situation makes us re-evaluate and re-examine the future flu vaccination process.”
