Jillian Goree says Toronto Public Health gave her 12-year-old son three shots at his school, even though she clearly indicated that she didn't want him to receive the immunizations.
Goree said she ticked "no" and wrote an extra "do not vaccinate" note at the top of the form for the Human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis and meningitis shots, as she had already booked an appointment with her family doctor to get her son the vaccinations.
She said her son told her that he'd voiced his concern with the nurse when he was taken to get the vaccinations, but he felt he wasn't listened to.
Goree said her son told the nurse that he didn't understand why he was there, but the nurse ignored him.

"So at that time he said he decided to stop trying to stop them." (more...)
