A Boston court has revoked custody of the parents of a 14-year-old child for not consenting to her COVID-19 vaccination.

There are no documents or reliable resources on the alleged case. It has only been featured on non-credible sites.

It has been reported that a family from Boston refused to vaccinate their 14-year-old child. The court intervened and terminated custody to prevent her from getting vaccinated without their permission. However, the story has not been featured on any reliable news websites, and there are no court documents available.

According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, a legally authorized representative (usually a parent or guardian) must consent to vaccinate their children aged 12 to 17 by filling out a written consent form that the minor (person under the age of 18) can bring to their vaccination appointment. Only the Pfizer vaccination is available to people aged 12 to 17.

The Boston Municipal Court website has not published any news or announcements that indicate the court intervening and terminating custody for a 14-year-old girl who wanted to be vaccinated but couldn't secure her parents' approval.

According to Logically, Dr. Robert Malone has been promoting himself as the inventor of mRNA vaccines which is misleading. In 1989, Malone published a paper titled "Cationic liposome-mediated RNA transfection." While this paper is an example of his essential contribution to the then-emerging field, it does not make him the inventor of mRNA vaccines.

Furthermore, Logically checked court records online and could not find details related to the story. Cases related to minors or family law may not be available for public view.

However, as the story has been featured on several non-credible sites without proper accreditation or sources, we have marked the story as false. We will update the story if more details become clear.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
