What is the legality of a doctor giving a minor shots without parental consent?

Question Details: My 16 year old went for a sports physical but the doctor decided to do a well checkup and gave her 2 shots - 1 was a booster from a previous shot and 1 was a shot that we are totally against. He never asked my permission and I was in the waiting room. Since he never asked my consent, was that illegal for him to do?
