Re H (A Child) (Parental Responsibility: Vaccination)  EWCA Civ 664
The Court of Appeal has held that a local authority had lawful authority under the provisions of the Children Act 1989 s33(3),
to arrange the vaccination of a child in care despite the objection of the parents. It was held that it would be unnecessary
and inappropriate to refer the decision to the High Court under its inherent jurisdiction, and that parental views on immunisation
should always be considered, but the decision depended solely on the child’s welfare.
