She revealed that she is looking for ways to protect her unvaccinated three-year-old during a measles outbreak in their area. Naturally, it didn’t take long before people started responding to the post.

The mom’s post reads as follows:

“My 3-year-old is not vaccinated and there is currently a measles outbreak in my state. Any suggestions for precautions I can take to protect her would be very much appreciated.”

The post immediately got answers from people who couldn’t help but see the irony in the mother’s plea. Needless to say, there was a lot of black humor to go around that day.

Some chose to point out the best possible way to protect a child from measles.

“I got it! You could expose her to a weakened or inactive strain of the virus so that her immune system is better equipped to recognize and combat the actual virus she’ll inevitably come into contact with which will decrease the likelihood of her getting sick.

Oh, wait.”

Another netizen shared the irony in the woman’s dilemma.

“What’s funny is, the vast majority of anti-vaxxers are vaccinated themselves. So they are safe, but put their kids at risk,” they wrote.

What do you think of the internet’s response to the anti-vaxxer mom? Is it about time people reconsidered vaccination for their unvaccinated children? Let us know about your thoughts in the comments below.
