Court to deliberate forced vaccinations

A judge will decide this week whether health authorities can vaccinate a child against its parents’ will. The case came about after a now three-week-old girl was given a vaccination against hepatitis B by delivery room personnel. The parents had requested that the vaccination not be given. The mother, Vinita Brødholdt, is allergic to vaccinations, and she feared her daughter would be harmed by the shot. After the injection was given, the girl’s parents said she suffered seizures. Vinita Brødholdt carries, but is not infected with, hepatitis B, and doctors are concerned that her daughter may be infected. Council health officials were set to continue the course of vaccinations, which involves an additional three injections, but a judge said the council must wait until a court can rule on the matter. – TV2 News
