Kid’s Corner 6: Informed Consent

Informed Consent

“Consent to immunizations should actually be considered before your child is in the doctor’s office and the vaccine is already in the syringe. No type of coercion or bullying or bribing should be part of the informed consent process.”

In this episode of ‘Kid’s Corner’, pediatrician Dr. Liz Mumper discusses the importance of informed consent and the right for parents to know the true risks and benefits. Dr. Mumper also addresses the need for parents to have these discussions with each, and for families to be able to make medical decisions for their children free of pressure, shaming and judgement from providers.
