A Detroit mother is fighting mad after school officials defied her specific instructions and gave her daughter four vaccinations, including one that has been linked to adverse physical reactions and even death in its recipients.
Sighle Kinney told Detroit’s WXYZ News that her 14-year-old daughter was pulled out of class at Marcus Garvey Academy on January 30, and administered vaccinations for hepatitis A, seasonal influenza, meningitis, and HPV (Human Papillomavirus, a sexually-transmitted disease) by nurses from St. John Providence Health System, the company that operates the school’s clinic.
Kinney was furious with the school and the nurses, explaining that she had never given her consent for the vaccinations, and had even signed a form specifying that she did not want the school to administer unnecessary medical treatment to her daughter. “I told them — if she falls, give her a Band Aid, or if she has a headache, give her an aspirin — that’s it,” she recalled.
“She comes home, hands me the envelope with the shot record in it that they gave her at school,” Kinney recalled of the day the school nurses defied her orders. “And when I looked at it I said, ‘What is this?’ And she was like, ‘They gave me shots, and they took blood, and they took urine.’”
The mother said that she was adamant to officials about protecting her daughter from vaccines, particularly the HPV vaccine, which, according to some sources has been linked to thousands of adverse reactions and scores of deaths (www.sanevax.org).
“Why would they give you an HPV vaccine?” Kinney recalled asking her daughter. “I never wanted you to have an HPV vaccine. And as far as you getting injections, you have your own private physician. I don’t need them to do that in school for you.”
A week after receiving the vaccinations, Kinney’s daughter came down with a rash that spread over her body — what her family doctor determined was an adverse reaction to one or more of the shots. She missed a week of school and her mother became concerned over potential long-term conditions because of the vaccines.
