Last month, a public health emergency was declared in Washington State, where there are 55 confirmed cases of the highly contagious viral disease.

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.

'It was like him spitting on me, saying "You don't know anything, I don't trust you with anything".

Ethan has discussed the importance of vaccinations with his siblings; his 16-year-old brother is sympathetic but his 14-year-old sister is siding with their mother.

As anti-vaccination movements metastasize amid outbreaks of risky disease, internet-savvy teenagers are fact-checking their parents' decisions in a digital health reawakening - and seeking their own treatments in bouts of family defiance.

Lindenberger's post drew more than 1,000 comments, including detailed information on navigating the health care system in one post from someone who identified as a nurse. But, due to their beliefs I've never been vaccinated for anything, god knows how I'm still alive, ' his post said.

"So I went to the public health department in my local town and spoke to some of the people there", he told Fox and Friends, "and they were very kind and they gave me information".

Bolton said Washington would support 'the will of the Iranian people, & stand behind them to ensure their voices are heard'. Tehran denies that. "I am not ignoring the threats of the Iranian regime, but nor I am impressed by them", he said.

'I'm also afraid I'd go somewhere that up charges vaccines way more than somewhere just down the street.

Ethan Lindenberger, 18, from Norwalk, Ohio, was reportedly never vaccinated before because his mother, Jill Wheeler, who owns a children's theater company, believed the now-discredited claims that vaccines routinely cause autism and brain damage.

The WHO report on measles in Europe found that the virus killed 72 children and adults in the European Region in 2018, while 82,596 people in 47 of 53 countries contracted measles, a number which is the highest it has been this decade.

The Washington State Public Health Department says almost 3,000 people got the vaccine this January, compared to about 530 people from last January. "I haven't succeeded. So instead I am trying to research how to be vaccinated without my mother's consent".

"I'm 15 years old and I never really thought about my parents not vaccinating me but now I have been doing some research about them and I don't really think they are harmful and I want to get a vaccine".

Health workers administer house-to-house measles vaccination to children in Payatas, Quezon City on February 7, 2019, amid measles outbreak in parts of the Philippines.

"Teen-aged female here", reads a Reddit posting from last week. I haven't got vaccines since elementary school, Dad fell down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole, and my Mom agrees with him. "Any and all advice is appreciated".
