Furious Mom Lashes Out At Anti-Vaxxers After 15-Day-Old Baby Is Exposed To Measles

There is still a lot of controversy surrounding vaccinations with some people being opposed to having their children treated. However, one furious mom decided to go after anti-vaxxers with a truly compelling speech. The young mother revealed that her 15-day-old son had been exposed to measles because someone refused to have their child vaccinated.

Jennifer Hibben-White wrote about her experience on Facebook. The young mom revealed that she received the bad news from her local health center. Hibben-White was told that she, her mother, and her baby Griffin were exposed to measles when they went in for a newborn weigh-in appointment. “Someone who later developed measles sat in the doctor’s waiting room between 1 hour before and 30 minutes before we arrived,” she wrote. Unfortunately, this meant that Hibben-White’s 15-day-old son could get measles since he has not yet been vaccinated.

Hibben-White targeted anti-vaxxers in her furious post.

The Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Vaccine is usually given to children 9 to 15 months of age with a second dose being administered at 15 months to 6 years of age.

Since Griffin was only a few days old when he was exposed to measles, there is not much that can be done for the baby. His mother was advised to observe her son for a full week after exposure.

Needless to say, Hibben-White was furious about the incident. She immediately took to social media and posted an “angry as hell” rant calling out anti-vaxxers for putting her child in danger.

There was a good reason for Hibben-White’s ire. In her post, it was revealed that she had previously lost a daughter to an incurable disease. The child was only five years old and there is little doubt that the mother wasn’t ready to lose another baby.
