OREANDA-NEWS. A teenager from Florence turned to lawyers because of parents forbidding him to get vaccinated against coronavirus, the Tuscany Family Lawyers Association told RIA Novosti.

The schoolboy said that his parents do not give him written permission to vaccinate.

"As a 17-year-old, he cannot choose a lawyer directly and cannot receive vaccinations without a document from his parents," Gianni Baldini, a spokesman for the association, told the reporter.

As the local media reported from the words of the teenager, his parents consider vaccines unsafe, calling them disgusting. The social services and the school learned about the problem, and through the Ministry of Education turned to lawyers.

"Until the application has reached the court. I will try to talk with the parents so that they change their minds," the lawyer says. According to him, such cases began to occur in Italy quite often. A similar episode occurs with a family from the city of Arezzo, where a 16-year-old boy is seeking vaccination.

Earlier it was reported that WHO fears an autumn outbreak of COVID-19 in Europe.

It is recalled that on March 11 last year, WHO recognized the situation with the spread of the new coronavirus as a pandemic. More than 178.4 million cases of the disease have been identified worldwide. 5 350 919 cases were detected in Russia
