You are a nurse at a school health clinic and a 14 years old student want to get vaccinated but his or her parents refuse for religious reasons. To ask to get vaccinated.

Note: the student is legally competent and does not have intellectual disability.

  • I will listen to the students request and vaccinate them even if the parents don't agree.

  • I will listen to the parents and refuse to vaccinate them knowing that not vaccinating could raise chance of serious complications.

  • It is a parent's choice whether or not children should be vaccinated. In addition, many vaccines are made with aborted fetal cells despite having ethical alternatives. A parent can refuse such vaccinations for religious reasons. Also, the child is a minor and thus can't make the decision.

  • It's the parents choice, no matter what their reason

  • I think vaccines should be required but we shouldnt let children decide that

I think in some states it is illegal to vaccinate a minor with out the parents permission.

@mathgeek It should be mandated that certain vaccines should be required by law.

Also what is the vaccine given for, It makes a slight difference.

@retrogamer176 mandated vaccines is a bad idea.

This is a hard one...
retrogamer176 says2015-04-05T14:04:58.8780468-05:00
How about if "faith healing was illegal?
Tonius5 says2015-04-05T17:55:17.2633272-05:00
How would that change anything?
retrogamer176 says2015-04-05T19:08:59.3975934-05:00
@tonius I don't know.
Tonius5 says2015-04-05T21:17:05.3991466-05:00
There you go.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-05T21:20:15.6218884-05:00
Wait I know: Since they cannot faith heal, the only place they have to go, is a vaccine!
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-06T09:40:01.7964885-05:00
Retrogamer, How much do you know about vaccines?
retrogamer176 says2015-04-06T09:41:38.0778134-05:00
Mathgeek: I know it's your best bet at avoiding a disease.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-06T09:42:45.3853711-05:00
You really don't know how they work do you?

I believe 100% in vaccination, but being a nurse myself, I wouldn't vaccinate the child without permission. I could lose my license. It doesn't matter what I believe, it matters what is legal.
