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(3) has withdrawn a prior written authorization for the person to consent.
Well what it says is that any of those people can give consent but they:
Of course it doesn't really require the healthcare facility to pursue verification of that & it relies on the person giving consent to provide factual information to the provider. The burden of providing the healthcare facility with factual information falls on the person giving consent, not the healthcare facility.
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.
