The medical ethics of a situation like this are a little grey, but since there is less harm in being vaccinated than there is in being unvaccinated, I don’t think the informed consent issue is a huge one hear. The vaccine has very few possible side effects. The only side effects are the ones that are common for all vaccinations.
