Get pizza, take a shot of vaccine! Now, that's "pizza with everything."

In a shocking story, a mom named Maribel Duarte told NBC Los Angeles that her 13-year-old son had come home from school with a vaccine card and told her he had accepted the shot after being offered pizza.

Offered? The word is “bribed.” (Not sure if he put it that way to his mom, but that’s what it was.) The boy was even told not to say anything about it.

“It hurt to know he got a shot without my permission, without knowing and without signing any papers for him to get the shot,” Duarte said.

The school was Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in South L.A. How ironic that this happened at a school named for the President who pushed a mandate for government health care policies. Feel free to make up your own joke.

The Los Angeles Unified School District has determined that all students 12 and over are required to be “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 by January 10, 2022, unless they’re granted a waiver or “other exemption.” That date is looming, but it looks as though they’re getting there, largely because, according to the story in FOX News, this district –- the second largest in the United States –- saw its enrollment drop by more than 27,000, or 6 percent, at the start of this school year over the mandate. At this point, among those who are still enrolled, the district boasts a vaccination rate of over 80 percent.

For LAUSD employees, the requirement started earlier. October 15 was the deadline for teachers and other staff to get their first shot. Those who hadn’t had one dose by then would not be able to return to work. One might think that in California, everybody was on board with the mandate, but that is definitely not the case.

https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/school-vaccine-mandate-california-covid-coroanvirus-gavin-newsom/2719402/

The district says they haven’t confirmed that this incident with the student occurred, but Duarte said her son told her that the woman who’d given him the shot --- and signed the paper --- had told him to keep it a secret. “Please don’t say anything,” she said to the student. “I don’t want to get in trouble.”

The school district does have what they call an “incentive program,” with the word “incentive” apparently meaning, at least in this case, “bribe.” They call it their Safe Steps to Safe Schools Incentive Program. “This program offers incentives to families who upload proof of their vaccine, have an approved medical exemption, or have conditional admissions.” Once they upload this proof, they are issued a “Daily Pass” to be able to attend class. They still have to wear a mask and socially distance “as best possible.”

It’s not clear what “conditional admissions” means. Perhaps some kids are sensitive to gluten and can’t eat the free pizza. Here's a closer look at the program.

https://achieve.lausd.net/covid

“The science is clear,” it begins, even though the scientific evidence in favor of vaccinating 12-year-olds for COVID-19 is not clear at all. Elsewhere on the site, it says, “Strong scientific evidence shows that vaccinations are an essential part of protecting our communities,” and links to this from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

https://publications.aap.org/pediatrics/article/148/2/e2021052336/179782/COVID-19-Vaccines-in-Children-and-Adolescents

It recommends COVID vaccination for children 12 and up. Still, if you read all the way to the bottom, there is this caveat: “The guidance in this statement does not indicate an exclusive course of treatment or serve as the standard of medical care. Variations, taking into account individual circumstances, may be appropriate.”

That’s funny, because by adhering to these strict deadlines, district officials ARE requiring “an exclusive course of treatment” and setting "the standard of medical care.” They need to remember they are not doctors –- or parents –- so they are about the last people who should be determining which “individual circumstances” to take into account.

The school district told NBC Los Angeles that “several steps are in place to ensure vaccinated students receive prizes.”

https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/mom-says-son-vaccinated-in-exchange-for-pizza-at-lausd-without-her-consent/2773619/

In all our searching, we still couldn’t turn up what the supposed “incentives” or “prizes” are that go to students and families (other than simply to be able to come in and attend class in person –- and free pizza, of course), or what those “conditional admissions” are. But the site explains that in order to be fully vaccinated by the deadline of January 10, every student 12 years old or older must receive the first shot no later than November 21 and the second no later than December 19. Younger students “must receive their first vaccine dose by no later than 30 days after their 12th birthday, and their second dose by no later than 8 weeks after their 12th birthday.”

For students 5-11, the vaccine is “highly encouraged” but not currently mandatory. The district started offering it on November 8.

Presumably, Duarte’s son had hit the deadline of November 21 without being vaccinated and would have had to leave school and take his classes online unless he got the first shot on schedule.

Tammy Bruce, host of Tuesday’s “Fox News Primetime,” spoke about this with with flabbergasted attorney Pam Bondi, former attorney general of Florida. “It’s not only disturbing,” she said, “but it is illegal, obviously, in the state of California.” Parental consent is still absolutely required for children under 18 to receive a COVID vaccine. Bondi pointed out that this boy has asthma and allergies –- something his mother would have known but the school likely did not. What if he’d had a reaction to the shot? Schools never used to give a child so much as a baby aspirin without parental approval.

“Parents, it is your choice,” Bondi said, “whether or not your children are going to be vaccinated. Not teachers, not the socialists, not the school bureaucrats who go rogue, and they have to be held accountable.” She said this parent has a civil case, and that it might even be considered criminal battery, as children can’t give consent.

The woman who gave the shot was right about one thing: if this kid said anything, she WOULD be in trouble, along with the school, the district, and everyone who’s pushing to do this or anything else to kids against their parents’ wishes. It’s a good thing he told his mom.

    Mike,
    Never one to be short of wisdom, I wonder when American citizens will wake up to the dangers of what we are seeing in our economy. In my opinion, the government is going to control three areas of our lives in efforts to take us down. They want to control our fuel supply, our food sources, and of course our medical needs. We lose these basic functions of everyday life, game is over! I keep fighting every day!

    So, what about a criminal and/or civil suit on behalf of the child? There are SO many possibilities, including assault, battery, intentional infliction of pain/emotional distress, administration of medication without consent, the list goes on. I would think the parents would want to pursue it but a civil rights group should be able to put forth a case as well.

    This mother needs to go after this school system with guns blazing and every last legal means at her disposal. I'm pretty certain people from all over America would be able to help her in this monstrous attack on her child!

    I just can't get excited over cases like this. I don't see how it is much different from all the other diseases students are required to be vaccinated against. It is not like Biden decreeing that every employer of 100 or more workers is required to enforce his mandate. Unlike the feds, states and localities have the constitutional authority to impose mandates like this. If there were no such mandates, untold numbers of students might have died from smallpox or complications of measles. It is not like a mask mandate, where the health benefit is uncertain, and touching masks might even spread disease. There is some slight risk to getting a COVID vaccine, but that is true of all vaccines.

    Common sense would dictate the immediate arrest of those involved, and an in-depth investigation into who gave the order! I sincerely hope Mrs. Duarte brings suit against the school system, the school board, the mayor, city council, and the governor.

    I still believe there's more going on then just protection against Covid-19! to much evidence world wide of Ivermectin and Hydroxchloroquinine being effective and many Doctors in India and other countries are using it to save lives!!! and for Doctors and FDA not to approve it is , to me, traitorous to the truth!! and more like a plan to reduce the population!! I pray I'm wrong cause my children have dutifully taken it!! God Bless America and help us!!

    If at all possible, pull your children out of public (and even some private) school! Giving a vaccine without parent consent is illegal. Any person who thinks otherwise should not give injections. I have been concerned about who they’re letting give injections as an RN. There’s a lot of legality to know about the medication, on top of reactions, what to do, etc. We just can’t trust these people with our children anymore. The school districts seem to try and hide a lot from parents. We’ve been homeschooling since 2017, and we’ll never go back. Such a better education.

  • Bruce W Groth

    12/08/2021 08:50 PM

    IS THIS SITUATION not a FELONY? Should the person giving the shot, the Principal who authorized the shot and the School Administrator along with the School Board not all be arrested and prosecuted? The doesn't the parent or parents have the ability to sue all of the folks who did this to a child?
    It seems we are living in an ALTERNATIVE WORLD because this type of activity would not have even been considered a year ago. SADLY the only thing we as citizens can do is VOTE THESE TYRANTS out of office ASAP and replace them with common sense politicians who respect our CONSTITUTION and LAWS.

    Well, nearly every aspect of American society that serves the public has been protected from the Biden admin’s evil vaccine mandate by the courts. That is, with the exception of the branches of the US military. Most branches are in process of reviewing medical exceptions and religious exemptions. NO RELIGIOUS exemptions have been approved. Not a single solitary one. The military is getting ready to begin separating brave, experienced, well trained military for refusing to inject their bodies with an experimental drug. These troops will lose their livelihood, accumulated time served as applies towards military benefits, no GI bill for education. Just getting dumped with a discharge that is less than honorable. Up until August these were Americas heroes fighting to preserve our freedoms. And now they are public enemy number one to the military, unable to use base gymnasiums, denied training, limited on and off base freedom, literally treated as an “untouchable”. Estimated to be in excess of 250,000 military members.
    Who is looking out for this very large segment of our society? Nobody! Not Congress, not unions, just maybe Moms and grandmothers?Watching young adults get crushed because they are good Catholic kids, just exercising their freedom of thought , and having a say about what is injected into their bodies, just the way we raised them. My granddaughter wants children n her

    Why has no one addressed or even publicized what is going on with this important segment of our society? A loss of this many military, even gradually is a threat to our national defense.

    This is mind blowing! If that parent doesn't go after this school hard, then she's crazy! I taught special ed for 20 years in CT and cannot imagine this happening! That nurse needs her head examined, and shold be fired, as well as lose her license! Same goes for anyone else in the school who knew it was happening and didn't try to stop it!!!

    Tammy Bruce, host of Tuesday’s “Fox News Primetime,” spoke about this with with flabbergasted attorney Pam Bondi, former attorney general of Florida. “It’s not only disturbing,” she said, “but it is illegal, obviously, in the state of California.” Parental consent is still absolutely required for children under 18 to receive a COVID vaccine. Bondi pointed out that this boy has asthma and allergies –- something his mother would have known but the school likely did not. What if he’d had a reaction to the shot? Schools never used to give a child so much as a baby aspirin without parental approval.

    “Parents, it is your choice,” Bondi said, “whether or not your children are going to be vaccinated. Not teachers, not the socialists, not the school bureaucrats who go rogue, and they have to be held accountable.” She said this parent has a civil case, and that it might even be considered criminal battery, as children can’t give consent.

    The woman who gave the shot was right about one thing: if this kid said anything, she WOULD be in trouble, along with the school, the district, and everyone who’s pushing to do this or anything else to kids against their parents’ wishes. It’s a good thing he told his mom.

      Mike,
      Never one to be short of wisdom, I wonder when American citizens will wake up to the dangers of what we are seeing in our economy. In my opinion, the government is going to control three areas of our lives in efforts to take us down. They want to control our fuel supply, our food sources, and of course our medical needs. We lose these basic functions of everyday life, game is over! I keep fighting every day!

      So, what about a criminal and/or civil suit on behalf of the child? There are SO many possibilities, including assault, battery, intentional infliction of pain/emotional distress, administration of medication without consent, the list goes on. I would think the parents would want to pursue it but a civil rights group should be able to put forth a case as well.

      This mother needs to go after this school system with guns blazing and every last legal means at her disposal. I'm pretty certain people from all over America would be able to help her in this monstrous attack on her child!

      I just can't get excited over cases like this. I don't see how it is much different from all the other diseases students are required to be vaccinated against. It is not like Biden decreeing that every employer of 100 or more workers is required to enforce his mandate. Unlike the feds, states and localities have the constitutional authority to impose mandates like this. If there were no such mandates, untold numbers of students might have died from smallpox or complications of measles. It is not like a mask mandate, where the health benefit is uncertain, and touching masks might even spread disease. There is some slight risk to getting a COVID vaccine, but that is true of all vaccines.

      Common sense would dictate the immediate arrest of those involved, and an in-depth investigation into who gave the order! I sincerely hope Mrs. Duarte brings suit against the school system, the school board, the mayor, city council, and the governor.

      I still believe there's more going on then just protection against Covid-19! to much evidence world wide of Ivermectin and Hydroxchloroquinine being effective and many Doctors in India and other countries are using it to save lives!!! and for Doctors and FDA not to approve it is , to me, traitorous to the truth!! and more like a plan to reduce the population!! I pray I'm wrong cause my children have dutifully taken it!! God Bless America and help us!!

      If at all possible, pull your children out of public (and even some private) school! Giving a vaccine without parent consent is illegal. Any person who thinks otherwise should not give injections. I have been concerned about who they’re letting give injections as an RN. There’s a lot of legality to know about the medication, on top of reactions, what to do, etc. We just can’t trust these people with our children anymore. The school districts seem to try and hide a lot from parents. We’ve been homeschooling since 2017, and we’ll never go back. Such a better education.

      IS THIS SITUATION not a FELONY? Should the person giving the shot, the Principal who authorized the shot and the School Administrator along with the School Board not all be arrested and prosecuted? The doesn't the parent or parents have the ability to sue all of the folks who did this to a child?
      It seems we are living in an ALTERNATIVE WORLD because this type of activity would not have even been considered a year ago. SADLY the only thing we as citizens can do is VOTE THESE TYRANTS out of office ASAP and replace them with common sense politicians who respect our CONSTITUTION and LAWS.

      Well, nearly every aspect of American society that serves the public has been protected from the Biden admin’s evil vaccine mandate by the courts. That is, with the exception of the branches of the US military. Most branches are in process of reviewing medical exceptions and religious exemptions. NO RELIGIOUS exemptions have been approved. Not a single solitary one. The military is getting ready to begin separating brave, experienced, well trained military for refusing to inject their bodies with an experimental drug. These troops will lose their livelihood, accumulated time served as applies towards military benefits, no GI bill for education. Just getting dumped with a discharge that is less than honorable. Up until August these were Americas heroes fighting to preserve our freedoms. And now they are public enemy number one to the military, unable to use base gymnasiums, denied training, limited on and off base freedom, literally treated as an “untouchable”. Estimated to be in excess of 250,000 military members.
      Who is looking out for this very large segment of our society? Nobody! Not Congress, not unions, just maybe Moms and grandmothers?Watching young adults get crushed because they are good Catholic kids, just exercising their freedom of thought , and having a say about what is injected into their bodies, just the way we raised them. My granddaughter wants children n her

      Why has no one addressed or even publicized what is going on with this important segment of our society? A loss of this many military, even gradually is a threat to our national defense.

      This is mind blowing! If that parent doesn't go after this school hard, then she's crazy! I taught special ed for 20 years in CT and cannot imagine this happening! That nurse needs her head examined, and shold be fired, as well as lose her license! Same goes for anyone else in the school who knew it was happening and didn't try to stop it!!!

    Election 2024 Coverage

    December 8, 2021

    Get pizza, take a shot of vaccine! Now, that's "pizza with everything."

    In a shocking story, a mom named Maribel Duarte told NBC Los Angeles that her 13-year-old son had come home from school with a vaccine card and told her he had accepted the shot after being offered pizza.

    Offered? The word is “bribed.” (Not sure if he put it that way to his mom, but that’s what it was.) The boy was even told not to say anything about it.

    “It hurt to know he got a shot without my permission, without knowing and without signing any papers for him to get the shot,” Duarte said.

    The school was Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in South L.A. How ironic that this happened at a school named for the President who pushed a mandate for government health care policies. Feel free to make up your own joke.

    The Los Angeles Unified School District has determined that all students 12 and over are required to be “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 by January 10, 2022, unless they’re granted a waiver or “other exemption.” That date is looming, but it looks as though they’re getting there, largely because, according to the story in FOX News, this district –- the second largest in the United States –- saw its enrollment drop by more than 27,000, or 6 percent, at the start of this school year over the mandate. At this point, among those who are still enrolled, the district boasts a vaccination rate of over 80 percent.

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/california-boy-coronavirus-vaccine-pizza-consent-school

    For LAUSD employees, the requirement started earlier. October 15 was the deadline for teachers and other staff to get their first shot. Those who hadn’t had one dose by then would not be able to return to work. One might think that in California, everybody was on board with the mandate, but that is definitely not the case.

    https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/school-vaccine-mandate-california-covid-coroanvirus-gavin-newsom/2719402/

    The district says they haven’t confirmed that this incident with the student occurred, but Duarte said her son told her that the woman who’d given him the shot --- and signed the paper --- had told him to keep it a secret. “Please don’t say anything,” she said to the student. “I don’t want to get in trouble.”

    The school district does have what they call an “incentive program,” with the word “incentive” apparently meaning, at least in this case, “bribe.” They call it their Safe Steps to Safe Schools Incentive Program. “This program offers incentives to families who upload proof of their vaccine, have an approved medical exemption, or have conditional admissions.” Once they upload this proof, they are issued a “Daily Pass” to be able to attend class. They still have to wear a mask and socially distance “as best possible.”

    It’s not clear what “conditional admissions” means. Perhaps some kids are sensitive to gluten and can’t eat the free pizza. Here's a closer look at the program.

    https://achieve.lausd.net/covid

    “The science is clear,” it begins, even though the scientific evidence in favor of vaccinating 12-year-olds for COVID-19 is not clear at all. Elsewhere on the site, it says, “Strong scientific evidence shows that vaccinations are an essential part of protecting our communities,” and links to this from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

    https://publications.aap.org/pediatrics/article/148/2/e2021052336/179782/COVID-19-Vaccines-in-Children-and-Adolescents

    It recommends COVID vaccination for children 12 and up. Still, if you read all the way to the bottom, there is this caveat: “The guidance in this statement does not indicate an exclusive course of treatment or serve as the standard of medical care. Variations, taking into account individual circumstances, may be appropriate.”

    That’s funny, because by adhering to these strict deadlines, district officials ARE requiring “an exclusive course of treatment” and setting "the standard of medical care.” They need to remember they are not doctors –- or parents –- so they are about the last people who should be determining which “individual circumstances” to take into account.

    The school district told NBC Los Angeles that “several steps are in place to ensure vaccinated students receive prizes.”

    https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/mom-says-son-vaccinated-in-exchange-for-pizza-at-lausd-without-her-consent/2773619/

    In all our searching, we still couldn’t turn up what the supposed “incentives” or “prizes” are that go to students and families (other than simply to be able to come in and attend class in person –- and free pizza, of course), or what those “conditional admissions” are. But the site explains that in order to be fully vaccinated by the deadline of January 10, every student 12 years old or older must receive the first shot no later than November 21 and the second no later than December 19. Younger students “must receive their first vaccine dose by no later than 30 days after their 12th birthday, and their second dose by no later than 8 weeks after their 12th birthday.”

    For students 5-11, the vaccine is “highly encouraged” but not currently mandatory. The district started offering it on November 8.

    Presumably, Duarte’s son had hit the deadline of November 21 without being vaccinated and would have had to leave school and take his classes online unless he got the first shot on schedule.

    Tammy Bruce, host of Tuesday’s “Fox News Primetime,” spoke about this with with flabbergasted attorney Pam Bondi, former attorney general of Florida. “It’s not only disturbing,” she said, “but it is illegal, obviously, in the state of California.” Parental consent is still absolutely required for children under 18 to receive a COVID vaccine.

Not teachers, not the socialists, not the school bureaucrats who go rogue, and they have to be held accountable.” She said this parent has a civil case, and that it might even be considered criminal battery, as children can’t give consent.

    The woman who gave the shot was right about one thing: if this kid said anything, she WOULD be in trouble, along with the school, the district, and everyone who’s pushing to do this or anything else to kids against their parents’ wishes. It’s a good thing he told his mom.
