Mother Sues LAUSD After Son Received COVID-19 Vaccine Without Her Consent

A California mother is suing the LAUSD after she says her 13-year-old son was given the COVID-19 vaccine in exchange for pizza without the mother’s consent.


As RedState’s Mike Miller reported, the 13-year-old attended the Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in South Los Angeles. The teenager went home with a vaccine card after he was given the COVID-19 vaccine at school.

Maribel Duarte, the mother of the teenager said:

“The lady that gave him the shot and signed the paper told my son…‘Please don’t say anything. I don’t want to get in trouble.’”

So the lady knew she was wrong to give the teen a vaccine without the mother’s consent, yet gave it to him anyway.

Duarte continued:

““It hurt to know he got a shot without my permission … He has problems with asthma and allergy problems.”

She added that she is not opposed to the COVID-19 vaccine, but because of her son’s asthma and allergy problems, she decided to not give him the vaccine.

She said that her son also suffers from a bleeding disorder, which is why the doctor did not recommend him to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Duarte’s attorney Nicole Pearson said.

“This is not a conspiracy theory. This is not an anti-vax case … This is about parental rights (and) about having the ability to protect your children.”

Pearson has attempted to get in contact with the LAUSD several times, but they have not responded.


Now, the mother is suing LAUSD over their foolish decision to vaccinate a 13-year-old without parental consent. During a news conference on Wednesday, the teenager’s mother said her son is suffering from side effects due to the vaccine. Every person reacts differently to the shot, that’s why it should be an individual choice, especially if the person is a minor.


Duarte said:

“He’s lacking of breath, doesn’t sleep well, he doesn’t do exercise the way he did. He is not normal to me.”

Duarte added that in order for the 13-year-old to get the shot, he was advised to forge her signature.

LAUSD released this statement:

“Los Angeles Unified does not typically comment on threatened, pending or ongoing litigation matters.”

This should be an outrage for parents across the country. No school or district should be administering vaccines — of any nature — without parental consent. If LAUSD could pull it off, other school districts could, too.
