A case is pending in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, after a child received the COVID-19 injection at school without his parents’ authorization.

Jennifer Ravain of Kenner, Louisiana, alleges her 16-year-old son was injected with the “vaccine” at East Jefferson High School without her consent. When an Ochsner mobile vaccination clinic came to vaccinate teenagers, her son was allowed to sign the consent form despite his underage status.

When an Ochsner mobile vaccination clinic came to vaccinate teenagers, her son was allowed to sign the consent form despite his underage status.

This is said to be a violation of Louisiana state law, which requires parental authorization for minor vaccines.

G. Shelly Maturin, Ravain’s attorney, said in a statement released by WDSU that “the egregious and reckless actions of Ochsner and East Jefferson High school went well beyond any legal and moral bounds and at a minimum, constitute a battery upon the minor child. Their actions should shock the conscience of all citizens of Louisiana.”

Ochsner Health System, which injected the students at East Jefferson High School, apologized for the incident and said that it is revising its school vaccination procedure in light of the alleged violation.

“As a leading healthcare provider in this community, we value the trust that parents put in us to care for their children, and we are revising our school vaccination program to ensure that this does not happen again,” they asserted in a statement obtained by WWLTV.

Correspondingly, Paris Vinnett, the spokesperson for the Jefferson Parish School Board, said that the incident was “isolated” but that they are continuing to investigate. “Ochsner Health officials have informed us that they are conducting a thorough investigation of the vaccine event to ensure this was an isolated incident and does not occur again.”

This is not the first time schoolchildren were injected with the COVID-19 “vaccine” without their parents’ consent. Minors were also injected against their parents’ requests at a Los Angeles, California, school that offered students free pizza in exchange for injection.

Maribel Duarte claims her 13-year-old son, who attends the Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in South Los Angeles, returned home with an immunization card after he received the COVID-19 injection.

The Los Angeles school district has said that student matters are confidential, but did not elaborate more. They did note, however, that their “Safe schools to safe steps incentive program” is meant to ensure that vaccinated children get rewards for their injections after successfully completing various approval stages.

Jennifer Kennedy, an attorney who is monitoring two cases filed against the Los Angeles Unified School District over the vaccine mandate, said that the challenge is that youngsters in California are unable to agree to vaccination without their parents’ prior consent.

“The LAUSD does not have the power to add a vaccine to the California school schedule,” she said.
