Ohio Teen Ethan Lindenberger Defies His Mom, Gets Vaccinated




(Newser)

Ethan Lindenberger grew up in Norwalk, Ohio, with an anti-vaxxer mother who refused to get his shots. Now that she is 18, Lindenberger is making headlines for her decision to challenge her mother and get vaccinated, reports USA Today . "My parents think that the vaccines are a kind of government scheme," wrote the teenager on Reddit when, for the first time, he decided to ask for help. "God knows how I'm still alive." He obtained more than 1

,000 answers by offering detailed advice on how to proceed, and Lindenberger began with shots for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, influenza and HPV, reports Washington Post . On Tuesday, Lindenberger went on ABC Good Morning America to tell his story.

"I had grown up feeling that I was not vaccinated because it was the best thing for me," he said. But after seeing various opinions online, he did his research and concluded that his parents were wrong. "It was like spitting on me," says Lindenberger's mother, Jill Wheeler, at the Undark site. In drafting the GMA Wheeler said he opposes vaccinations because he has heard of negative reactions: "He scared me". Some states are starting to make their own medical decisions easier for the "mature minors", note the ABC story, but most states still fully take responsibility in their parents' hands. (A decrease in vaccinations is attributed to this measles epidemic.)
