Whilst not NZ, this has relevance in terms of the global push to own your children & your decisions about and for them. Recently there was word and concern about medical procedures like swabbing school children without parental knowledge or consent in Auckland. In fact there has been blatant coercion going on in various places for some time. In this article regarding a NZ incident, note the comments from other parents cited as to what they’d discovered regarding coercion with their own children. I think the lesson is to be vigilant, watchful, informed and on the alert.

The aim of the study was to determine if sufficient literature exists to require clinicians to disclose the specific risk that COVID-19 vaccines could worsen disease upon exposure to challenge or circulating virus.” https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33113270/)
“Committee Chair and Bill Sponsor Admit “Imminent” COVID-19 Vaccine Is Reason for Sudden Push to Eliminate Parental Rights”
On Oct. 7, 2020, during a hastily scheduled virtual meeting,1 four District of Columbia Council members making up the Health Committee2 amended and unanimously passed a minor consent bill, B23-0171.3
The bill would not only permit children aged 11 years and older to give consent for doctors and other vaccine administrators to give them vaccines without their parents’ knowledge or consent, but would also require insurance companies, vaccine administrators and schools to conceal from parents that the child has been vaccinated.
On Oct. 20, 2020,4 the entire DC Council voted in favor of the bill 12:15 on the first reading in yet another virtual online meeting6 with no public testimony. It was announced that the second reading, which will be the final vote, will take place on Nov. 10, 2020.7
Committee Chair and Bill Sponsor Admit “Imminent” COVID-19 Vaccine Is Reason for Sudden Push to Eliminate Parental Rights
NVIC issued an alert8 through the online NVIC Advocacy Portal when the bill had it’s first public hearing in June of 2019 advising opposition to the bill, which violated parental medical informed consent rights.
Testimony was taken,9 and NVIC submitted testimony against the bill.10
B23-0171 then sat for over a year untouched and unmoved.
In a revealing statement Vincent C. Gray (D-Ward 7), the chair of the DC Health Committee which passed the bill, explained why the bill was all suddenly being revived and pushed through so quickly.
Gray was quoted in The Washington Post as saying,
“the hope of an imminent coronavirus vaccine gave the bill new urgency.”11
