Teen defies mother, gets vaccines after turning 18

12 Février, 2019, 05:24 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

For many teenagers, turning 18 years old means celebrating at a party but for one Norwalk teen it meant going to get a slew of vaccinations he no longer needed his parents' permission to receive.

But his mother had an incendiary response to Ethan getting vaccinated, saying it was "a slap in the face ..."

'My parents think vaccines are some kind of government scheme. But, due to their beliefs I've never been vaccinated for anything, god knows how I'm still alive, ' his post said.

In three states, at least three self-described teenagers told Reddit they have a common problem: Their parents are staunchly opposed to vaccination, and they fear for their health if they do not take action. Lindenberger has more shots scheduled for later this month.

However there are no federal laws regulating the issue for minors who wish to get shots and it varies between different states. "There's nothing that's going to change my mind on this on that specific vaccination", said mother Monique Murray.

"I looked into it, it was clear there was way more evidence in defense of vaccines", he said.

Jill Wheeler, the mother of Ethan Lindenberger, 18, vaccinated her oldest daughter and partially vaccinated her oldest son. "You did make a bad decision and I'm gonna go fix it'".

He says the only shot he received, tetanus, as a toddler was out of necessity. A surge in measles cases prompted Gov. Jay Inslee to declare a state of emergency January 25.

The latest case is not believed to be linked to an outbreak of measles in the state of Washington, Hussain said.

At 18, Lindenberger controls the vaccinations he gets and has since been immunized for HPV, hepatitis A, hepatitis B and influenza. That death brought up discussions about whether to do away with the "philosophical or personal beliefs" exemption to vaccinating a child before they're allowed to enter a public school, which inevitably led to a flame war between Jim Carrey and half of Twitter.

At the same time, 2018 followed a year in which Europe achieved its highest-ever coverage for the second dose of measles vaccination at the national level, showing that gaps at subnational levels are to blame for the disease's resurfacing.

"The total number of people infected with the virus in 2018 was the highest this decade: 3 times the total reported in 2017 and 15 times the record low number of people affected in 2016", World Health Organization said.

Ethan chose to post on Reddit for advice.
