In an interview with “os vos Affairs”, Family and Youth Law Advocate Me Valérie Assouline unequivocally states: “Court approval is required if a parent opposes the vaccine”.
The lawyer also advises parents to avoid going to vaccinate the child without the knowledge of the opponent.
“This is not the best idea of the century,” he said, adding that the gesture was “not much appreciated by the courts.”
“It is very important to value the parental authority of both parents,” says M. Azolin.
However, he notes that a judge will evaluate the best interests of the child to provide a decision.
“Under current law, vaccination is in the best interests of the child and respect for public health rules,” the lawyer underlined.
He therefore believes that there is a risk that a judge will rule in favor of a parent who wants to see his or her child vaccinated.
