In an interview with CNN, Lindenberger said his conversation with his parents about him getting vaccinated was actually civil.
Ethan chose to post on Reddit for advice. He wrote: "God knows how I'm still alive".
In a popular Reddit post in November, he sought information about how to get his first vaccines. "My parents think vaccines are some kind of government scheme", the teen wrote on Reddit when he first chose to reach out for guidance. I haven't got vaccines since elementary school, Dad fell down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole, and my Mom agrees with him.
Wheeler. who said that records showing Ethan getting two shots in 2002 are mistaken, that he only got a shot for tetanus after he cut himself, has some odd ideas of her own, asserting, "Polio, if you really research polio, it was nearly completely eradicated, nearly gone, there was nearly no cases of polio when they introduced the oral vaccine". Now that I'm 18, where do I go to get vaccinated? "We also respect that ultimately parents make choices for their children".
Lindenberger has younger siblings, and he said that he hopes they get vaccinated. "There's a distinguishing difference between disagreeing with a parent and trying to disobey with them out of spite". In 2001, only 0.3% of kids between 19 and 35 months had received no vaccine doses.

Another teenager, who in September identified himself as a 15-year old from Minnesota, asked Reddit for help to parse state laws in an effort to gain immunization himself.

"Vaccines save lives and are safe and effective". In Italy, where the current governing coalition had pledged to drop a law banning children without vaccination from starting pre-school (the coalition has since reversed its position), health officials have declared a 'measles emergency, ' as nearly one quarter of all measles cases in Europe in 2017 were reported in Italy.
Since fall 2018, at least 204 people have become ill with the highly contagious and potentially deadly disease, which a vaccine can prevent.
'But the diseases we developed vaccines for - like polio, which killed or crippled thousands of children - were selected precisely because they're so severe'.
