     1    Section  1.  The  public health law is amended by adding a new section

     4  care  practitioner,  acting  within  their lawful scope of practice, may
     5  administer immunizations required under this title to a person who is at
     6  least fourteen years of age without the  consent  or  knowledge  of  the
     7  parents or guardian of said person, if the minor has capacity to consent

     9    2.  Prior  to  administering  any immunization under this section, the
    10  health care practitioner shall consult with and  counsel  the  minor  to

    12  consequences of receiving the immunization, has the capacity to consent,
    13  and that the immunization is not contraindicated by the minor's  medical
    14  history.
