Teen defies mom, gets vaccinated after turning to strangers online

Measles is a potentially fatal disease for children

For most of his life, Lindenberger thought it was normal for most kids not to get immunized, but about two years ago he began to see how the posts about vaccines his own mother was sharing on social media were unsafe.

The anti-vaxxer movement is seeing signs of revolt.

'I'm very proud of him for standing for what he believes in, even if it is against what I believe.

While most children are still routinely vaccinated before they go to elementary schools throughout the United States, parents have managed to find loopholes to prevent their children from receiving the necessary vaccination. Mr. Lindenberger said he wanted to get vaccinated but did not know how. He wrote his parents think vaccines are "some kind of government scheme" and said due to their beliefs, he'd "never been vaccinated for anything, God knows how I'm still alive". It's stupid and I've had countless arguments over the topic.

'God knows how I'm still alive, ' he wrote in a post that attracted more than 1,000 comments.

A teenager has instructed how to be secretly received vaccinated in opposition to the needs of his dad and mom, who he claimed believed debunked anti-vaccine "conspiracy theories", they learn on the web.

"I have a two-year-old sister and five-year-old brother and due to their age and vaccines can prevent them from getting a disease that's preventable, I do worry about them", said Lindenberger. "I spoke to a family physician and from then on I went and made an appointment and a few months later I had about five vaccines I have more coming this month", he said.

As a child, he missed out on receiving the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, that nearly all states demand youngsters have as a way to attend faculty, and which the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention recommends is given in two doses.

He started researching vaccinations about two years ago when he questioned some of his mother's posts on social media about how vaccines were unsafe.

As these teenagers come of age, they are starting to form their own opinions and deciding that their parents don't know best when it comes to their health and well-being.

"I am writing because I am the 15-year-old son of an anti-vaccine parent", reads a plea posted on Reddit four months ago.

Lindenberger showed his parents scientific studies that showed vaccines were safe and effective, but his mother remained unconvinced. His mother has already indicated that she will not allow his 16-year old brother to be immunized, although he wants it, Lindenberger said.

OH is one of several states where parents can make that decision. "Generally, a minor may not consent to immunizations unless they are considered a 'mature minor, ' that is, legally emancipated from their parents", Winnike wrote. What he found was that there was "a lot more evidence" in favor of vaccinations.
