This State Is Taking A Stand To Protect Their Children

There has been a bit of a culture war between the left and right when it comes to heath treatments for minors. Liberals want children to have access to things such as hormone pills, abortion, and birth control, without their parent’s consent.

The left had the same idea when it came to COVID-19 vaccinations. Several health departments around the country are targeting teenagers, trying to give them shots without their parents’ permission.

Tennessee decided that wasn’t something they would allow in their state.

The Tennessee Department of Health will halt all adolescent vaccine outreach – not just for coronavirus, but all diseases – amid pressure from Republican state lawmakers, according to an internal report and agency emails obtained by the Tennessean. If the health department must issue any information about vaccines, staff are instructed to strip the agency logo off the documents.

The health department will also stop all COVID-19 vaccine events on school property, despite holding at least one such event this month. The decisions to end vaccine outreach and school events come directly from Health Commissioner Dr. Lisa Piercey, the internal report states.

Additionally, the health department will take steps to ensure it no longer sends postcards or other notices reminding teenagers to get their second dose of the coronavirus vaccines. Postcards will still be sent to adults, but teens will be excluded from the mailing list so the postcards are not “potentially interpreted as solicitation to minors,” the report states.

This doesn’t mean that minors can’t receive their vaccines, only that they’re no longer going to market directly to them.

It’s important that children have a parent to help them through any kind of medical decision. All things come with a risk of serious side effects that should be discussed with a child’s doctor.
