Teenager Defies Anti-Vaxxer Mom By Getting Vaccinated When He Turned 18

“I’ve never been vaccinated for anything, God knows how I’m still alive.”

What’s the worst thing that you have done behind your parents’ back? One teenager went pretty far when his anti-vaxxer mother insisted that he didn’t need vaccination. The young man decided to get vaccinated when he finally turned 18.

Ethan Lindenberger from Ohio was raised by parents who did not believe that vaccinations were necessary. According to the high school senior, his mom and dad “think vaccines are some kind of government scheme.” However, Lindenberger has learned more about the benefits of vaccinations and wanted to make sure he got the shots. In an effort to get help, the teenager posted his concerns on Reddit. Not surprisingly, people gave him all the details he needed to schedule a vaccination.

Lindenberger reached out to netizens to find out where he can get vaccinated.

My parents are kind of stupid and don’t believe in vaccines. Now that I’m 18, where do I go to get vaccinated? Can I get vaccinated at my age? from NoStupidQuestions

Lindenberger didn’t waste time in getting vaccinated. Unfortunately, it also caused a strain on his relationship with his anti-vaxxer mother.

“My mom was especially angry but my dad said because I’m 18 he doesn’t care that much. Although my moms trying to convince me to not do it and saying I don’t care about her, I know that this is something I need to do regardless,” he wrote.

Needless to say, Lindenberger’s story got mixed reactions. Although some applauded his decision to get vaccinated, others believed he was putting himself in trouble. His mom Jill Wheeler was even interviewed and admitted that the boy’s decision felt like “a slap in the face.”

The teenager has refused to back down although his mom insisted he was wrong. Lindenberger even pointed out that he got immunized not just for himself but for his siblings as well.

“If I get whooping cough I may be able to handle it because I’m older and I have a good immune system,” he said in an interview. “But who’s to say I don’t cough on my two-year-old sister? That’s an extremely scary thought.”

“If you have chosen to not vaccinate yourself or your child, I blame you.”

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.

Many of us have experienced going against our parents, regardless of how good they are, thinking we know better than they do - only to eventually realize later in our lives that yes, we were just young and stupid back in the days.
