Question: 

We have shared guardianship of two children. I want to follow the vaccination plan. My ex believes the children should not be vaccinated. Do I need my ex's permission to do this?

Answer: 

The consent of one parent is needed for a health care provider to immunize a child. This parent must have the authority to give consent. Please discuss this further with your health care provider.
