Are you really providing informed consent? Many people are vaccinated without being fully aware of what they are agreeing to

Many of us are guilty of signing documents without really reading them properly. Just as failing to read a legal document could lead to financial losses or other problems later on, failing to read the consent forms at doctors’ consulting rooms and hospitals could also have serious repercussions. The bottom line is that there is a big difference between “consent” and “informed consent.” Even if it feels like an unnecessary delay at a particularly stressful time when someone in your family is ill, it is important to read all consent forms carefully before signing them.

One of the keywords to look out for on such forms is the word “biologics.” This rather vague sounding term actually covers a wide variety of naturally sourced (biological) materials, including blood and blood products used for transfusions. What many of us might not be aware of, however, is that it also covers the use of human cells and tissue for transplants, cellular and gene therapies, and a variety of tests.

And, as recently reported by Natural Health 365, those who do not wish themselves or their children to be vaccinated should be aware that biologics can also include vaccines. (Related: Vaccines forced on unconscious patients and how to protect yourself.)

Be clear about the meaning of biologics and whether you agree to receive them

Hidden among the tons of documents that patients are asked to sign at the doctor’s office or upon admission to hospital, there will usually be one that references consent to receiving biologics. Since many are unaware of exactly what that term means, patients who do not wish to receive vaccinations (or blood transfusions or other treatments) might easily give consent to such treatments without being aware that they are doing so.

Of course, patients have a right to refuse vaccinations and other medical treatments that they are ethically opposed to or believe could endanger their health or that of their children, but the onus remains on the patient to carefully check through all consent documents and request clarification of anything they don’t understand before signing.

As noted by Natural Health 365:

Simply put, ask questions and have the language of any form you’re required to sign clarified. You have the right to manage and decide what happens to your body and what transpires during medical treatment.

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) states that the process of vaccination must be subject to the same consent ethic that guides the rest of modern medicine. Vaccination involves the use of pharmaceutical products that could cause injury or, in some cases, premature death.

Never forget that you have a right to say ‘no’ to any medical treatment or intervention – including vaccines. The murky and deceptive language about biologics on medical consent forms is highly troublesome. (to say the least!) (Related: Global pattern of vaccine injury, death and deception haunts humanity.)

Knowledge is power

Of course, before being able to provide informed consent it is important to gather information, read up about various medical procedures, and examine the possible benefits of vaccinations and other treatments versus their side effects and long-term health consequences.

Trying to do all that at the doctor’s consulting room or while trying to get admitted to the hospital is simply not feasible. It is important to gather information and make decisions about your health and that of your loved ones now – in a calm and controlled way.

And, remember: Each one of us needs to be proactive about taking control of our own health and medical decisions – and that includes having all the necessary information needed to be able to truly provide “informed consent.”
