A mother in Washington, D.C., is suing a physician, accusing her of coercing the mother's two teenagers to accept the COVID shots by locking them in a room and not allowing them to leave until they cooperated.

The report comes from the Vaccination Reaction and was highlighted by investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.

The report explains the case has been brought by NaToya McNeil and is against Janine Rethy, of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

It charges Rethy with isolating McNeil's two teens "in a room in a mobile clinic." She then "refused to let them leave until they were forcibly vaccinated for COVID."

The teens, 14 and 16, had gone to the mobile clinic for a routine annual checkup, the report said.

"They were given false information about vaccination requirements and not allowed to leave the room to consult with their mother who was waiting right outside the clinic. The children had informed the doctor that their mother was available and waiting just outside the clinic with their baby brother. However, the doctor apparently made no attempt to contact the mother to obtain her consent to vaccination," the report explained.

Besides the COVID shots, the daughter was forced to take the meningococcal vaccine and the son was given the DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine, after being told they could not return to school without all the shots, the report said.

Now the case against the doctor reveals McNeil's charges of false imprisonment, battery and fraud.

The mother said, in a statement, "I just feel like people shouldn’t be able to do whatever they want to do to other people and especially not to children. As a mother, you just 'took all my rights away from me to do what you wanted to do to my kids… To do that to my little children, my innocent children. They took their rights.'"

Officials in D.C. had decided to allow minors as young as 11 to accept vaccinations, if they are fully capable of understanding and giving consent, without a parent's permission, the report said.

But, the report noted, the "1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act ('The Act') passed by Congress never intended that minor children would be making vaccination decisions for themselves."

It continued, "Vaccine safety informing, recording and reporting provisions included in that historic law were specifically designed to give parents more information about vaccines so they can help prevent vaccine injuries and deaths. The 1986 Act stipulates that a health care provider must give a copy of vaccine information published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC), which is known today as the Vaccine Information Statement (VIS), to the 'parent or legal representative of any child to whom the provider intends to administer such vaccine.'"

The district provision later was struck down by a court.
