If one of the two is unable to sign it, the other parent must declare it by filling in and signing the appropriate form (available in the forms section of the Health Authorities) which must be attached to the consent.
The minor must be accompanied for vaccination by one or both parents: it is not possible to delegate third parties, even if they were family members.
