Wait a second. Does this mean that even if 2 parents AGREE on non vaccinating, and the child happens to stay over at grandmas (pro-vax grandma), she has the right to take them in to play catch up and they would not even blink an eye?
(what a scary thought.. Im hoping this is only true in Texas and no other states. How bizarre)
|may not consent for the child if the person has actual knowledge that a parent, managing conservator, guardian of the child, or other person who under the law of another state or a court order may consent for the child:
(1) has expressly refused to give consent to the immunization;
(2) has been told not to consent for the child; or
(3) has withdrawn a prior written authorization for the person to consent.
Of course, if a parent had previously notified the provider that they refused vaccines & that nobody else should be permitted to consent for their child then that's a different story because the provider would be aware that the parent refused consent. I'm not sure though how it would all play out in a situation where one parent expressed refusal & the other parent consented.
