In response to concerns that school districts in Washington and elsewhere may vaccinate minor children without parental consent, Joe Kent made the following statement:

Parental authority is sacred and must not be pushed aside to inject experimental COVID vaccines into a child behind a parent’s back. The decision of whether to vaccinate a minor must lie entirely with the child’s parents.

We have witnessed the government bypassing parental consent for medical procedures on minors, including for abortions, right here in Washington State in King County.

I’m a parent of two young children myself, and I stand with parents of the Third Congressional District, the state of Washington, and all across the country demanding no minor child is given an experimental drug without his or her parent’s explicit consent.
