Teen defies anti-vaccine parents, gets shots

Reported cases of measles have spiked 30 per cent worldwide since 2016

According to the Washington Department of Health, almost one in four Clark County kindergarten students during the 2017-18 school year did not get all their immunizations; at three different elementary schools, over 40% of kindergarteners did not get vaccinated before they started kindergarten. "You did make a bad decision and I'm gonna go fix it'".

However there are no federal laws regulating the issue for minors who wish to get shots and it varies between different states.

Lindenberger said that his mother has tried to convince him to stop getting vaccines, but to no avail.

He says the only shot he received, tetanus, as a toddler was out of necessity.

"Her opinions are mostly not backed by science, so very largely illogical or rooted in misinformation", said Lindenberger, about disagreeing with his mom. The other must be a paperwork mistake, she said.

"I have seven children; five have not been vaccinated", said Wheeler.

In Washington, a self-described underage teen wrote in January that his or her mother would not allow vaccines.

Recent measles outbreaks in the USA have reignited the debate over whether non-medical exemptions to inoculations should be allowed.

It comes as an outbreak of measles were confirmed in ten states and a public health emergency was declared in an anti-vaccination "hot spot" in Portland, Oregon, last month.

"Measles is exquisitely contagious".

Yet before the push for eradicating polio worldwide began in 1988, 350,000 children were paralyzed by polio each year, while according to the World Health Organization, in 2018, there were barely 100 cases of vaccine-derived polio in the entire world. User /u/Danny691261 posted, "I am writing because I am the 15 year old son of an anti-vaccine parent".

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.

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. In Canada, a Vancouver man was diagnosed this past Thursday with the virus but is said to have passed the period during which it is considered infectious.

The Washington State Department of Health keeps track of residents' immunization status so people can see if they need shots.

"It breaks my heart that she could get measles and she'd be done", Lindenberger said.
