RURAL LAKE CITY – When an outbreak of cortex penetrates through Washington state, children of anti-vaccine parents are taken to the Internet to ask how they can get a vaccine without the consent of their parents
The Reddit site, in particular, has been in the past two months At least half a dozen reports were found out of unvaccinated teenagers who asked what rights they, as minors, should be in contrast to believers in the protection of their parents' health.
Fear that vaccines cause autism in the fortress in this country. Almost one in ten Americans believe that at least some of the vaccines are dangerous, according to the Pew Research Center, another 7 percent of Americans are not sure if they are healthy or not.
Health professionals insist on the unjustified nature of these concerns. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in essence, devoted a section of its website to scatter the idea that vaccines are causing autism.
Nevertheless, the faith was slow to shake from the collective consciousness of the nation. A recent outbreak of bark in Washington, as many health experts say, is a direct consequence of this belief, which has a particularly strong influence in this country. In some Washington school districts, a quarter of all students in kindergartens are not adequately vaccinated.
Recently, however, their children take the matter into their own hands.
A couple of months ago, a Reddit r / legaladvice 1
"Over the past four years, I have been trying to convince my mother that the vaccine is safe. I did not succeed, "the teenager wrote. "What legal consequences can I encounter if the signature of my father is falsified, which gives me the consent for the vaccine?" Others soon followed his footsteps. Three months later, an 18-year-old son of an anti-voxer asked, "Now that I am 18 years old, where should I go to get an injection?" And only 15 days ago another teenager asked: "I am a minor who wants to make a vaccine. What are my options? "
We were able to find more than a dozen other examples of adolescents who went to the site looking for an exit.
Some have pointed to laws in their states that allow minors to receive vaccinations without the consent of their parents. However, most states do not give children this right up to the age of 18, leaving most teens without choice, in addition to trying to talk with their parents to give them their due. lead to serious consequences. In another topic, an anti-fox child shared his experience raised without vaccines and the pain of infecting a cortex at the age of 22 years.
From all the stories of adolescents in search of vaccines, none has spread. As for the 18-year-old Ethan Lindenberger
Lindenberger's plot was recorded step by step in the media, since he posted on Reddit two months ago asking how now, when he He was aged, he could be vaccinated.
"God knows how I'm still alive," Lindenberger wrote in his post
His mother, according to Lindenberger, refused to give him a vaccine, believing that they cause autism. She adhered to this conviction, even when he showed his scientific papers that denied this conviction, telling his son that these documents are exactly what an uncertain "they" want people to think.
The largest healthcare organization around the world will be scammed with a statement like the theory of conspiracy, similar to that, "said Lindenberger, NPR
. Lindenberger's mother expressed her own side of the story, telling Anderke: "I did not immunize him because I felt it was the best way to protect him and keep him safe."
She compared the decision of the son with a slap in the face. "I do not know anything, I do not trust you anything. You do not know what you are talking about. You made a bad decision and I'm going to fix it. "
Her son said that he was sorry for how he spoke about his mother and how it was depicted in the media. In an interview with BBC, he said: "I had to apologize for some of the things that I spoke on Reddit, where I said that it was irrational, crazy, dumb – because I was upset, I did not expect be in the public eye and need to protect mother. This is not fair for her. "
Mother and son, however, both refused to change their position. Ethan Lindenberger now gets a vaccine, while his mother becomes more determined than ever in his position against them.
The experience, she said, convinced her that she needed to "better educate" her children on the dangers she perceived in vaccines.
"I need to start the education of my 16-year-old and 14-year-old husband right now," she said, "saying, therefore, I do not believe it."
