how troubled she was when her son was vaccinated anyway

KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- For many parents making the decision whether or not to get their kids the swine flu vaccine has been a major one.

So when one mom decided against the swine flu vaccine, you can imagine how troubled she was when her son was vaccinated anyway.

After having concerns about the vaccine, she did her homework and at the end of the day, the best decision for her was not to have her son Dylan vaccinated.

So when Dylan came home the other night and had some sniffles- his grandmother asked him if his allergies were bothering him.

Dylan said no, but that he had received a nasal spray that day at school. His family figured out it was the vaccine he was given, even though his mom signed the box on the consent form that said she wasn’t interested.

She did though fill out the entire form, in the event the vaccine became mandatory. That created some confusion for the nurses.

Bottom line though, she did not give the folks at the school vaccination clinic her permission.

“They just need to be more cautious, I know it was a mistake I know it wasn’t intentional, they weren’t trying to force it on people, but they need to read the form. If you fill out a form they need to look and see what you put on there,” said Pam Jacobs, Dylan’s Grandmother.

The Kanawha-Charleston Health Department says they have talked to Dylan’s family and say there was an error made.
