An 18-year-old American teenager has decided to celebrate his coming of age with a full immunization session, after all her childhood, her mother decided not to vaccinate her against measles, rubeola, chickenpox and the rest of possible diseases.
"I put all the injections that my mother did not let me put on throughout my life," explained the young Ethan. Apparently, her mother did not believe in vaccines due to various information that I had read on the Internet. The young man considers that his parents' opinion about vaccines is "stupid", which they consider to be "a government machination".
The young man, who still has several vaccines to get, he had long wanted to be immunized and that it was contrary to the theories of his mother, especially when he saw that his classmates were vaccinated and began to investigate on his own.
The mother, who linked vaccines with future brain damage and with autism, he thought that he would end up convincing his son and considered his decision as an act of rebellion. However, this has not been the case and, after finding out on the Internet what steps to take, Ethan has managed to live more easily in the face of possible illnesses. Fortunately, none has affected him to date.
The vaccines have managed to eradicate diseases that were fatal at the time, although there are growing ideologies and beliefs that opt for rejecting vaccines, considering that they have harmful side effects.
The World Health Organization has cited the anti-vaccines movement as one of the greatest threats to the health of humanity.
