NC Court Rules Federal PREP Act Protects Forced Vaccination Without Parental Consent | 8 April 2024 | A North Carolina Court of Appeals found that a clinic, where personnel gave a 14-year-old boy a COVID-19 shot without his consent or parental consent, was protected by the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act). The court concluded that the Guilford Board of Education, which hosted the clinic, was also covered by the PREP Act. Despite calling the act of forcing a child to get a COVID-19 shot against his will and without his parent's consent, "egregious," the court unanimously concluded that the PREP Act preempted state law and protected the defendants from being held liable for battery, violation of Tanner's mother's constitutional liberty and parental rights, and violation of Tanner's bodily autonomy and plaintiffs' federal constitutional rights.
