This bill just passed a few days ago: Minor Consent For Vaccinations Amendment Act Of 2019

Sharing is Caring!

“As introduced, this bill permits a minor of any age to consent to receive a vaccine where the vaccination is recommended by the United States Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. It also establishes that if a minor is able to comprehend the need for, the nature of, and any significant risks inherent in the medical care then informed consent is established.”

From my understanding this means minors are now able to consent to vaccinations without their parents having to know
