Ohio Teen Chooses to Get Vaccinated in Defiance of His Anti-Vaxx Parents: 'God Knows How I'm Still Alive'

Hitting age 18 is a major milestone for teens, who become legal adults and can do everything from voting and enlisting in the military to working full-time. For Ethan Lindenberger, it also meant taking his health into his own hands by finally getting his vaccinations — without his parents’ approval.

Lindenberger, from Norwalk, Ohio, was never vaccinated as a child because his parents “think vaccines are some kind of government scheme,” he wrote in a Reddit post from November, when he asked for advice on navigating the health care system. “It’s stupid and I’ve had countless arguments over the topic.”

When all this is said and done, I hope Jenny McCarthy is brought up on criminal charges.

I wonder if we aren't at a tipping point--for a few years, kids who weren't vaccinated were still protected by herd immunity. But now, particularly in some locations, that herd immunity is gone, and the unvaccinated are simply going to get really sick. You'd hope that these outbreaks will in fact demonstrate that the side effect of not getting the measles vaccine is measles, and people will start to understand that vaccines are safe, simple, and effective.

It's probably a good think that polio is pretty close to eradicated, so hopefully we won't see polio outbreaks. But 15 years ago, measles was eradicated in the US.

This is why the WHO listed the anti vac fanatic as a top ten threat to human health.

I had a meeting at the Pentagon with lots of generals. They were like from a movie. Better looking than Tom Cruise & stronger.

That "Ohio Teen" turned out to be a marketing manager trying to go viral (no pun intended).

Two different bills were introduced in PA this session to get rid of that, fwiw.

lengthy reddit thread where people contend that he could in fact be both a 'social media strategist' AND an 18YO high school student. Didn't read very far to come to a conclusion.

wokesloth is bucky side hustle that war clicks a bunch of ads on some cheesy website!

Now for the problem with that piece, it is flimsy as crap. If you follow t down the rabbit hole to reddit the 'its all a marketing scam' starts to fall apart. https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/com ... nts_didnt/ The gotcha seems like it is based on his aspirations. The SMMM title seems like the bogus claim more then anything else. Regardless I hope he 'sells' a lot of vaccines.

Not sure r/conspiracy is the best place for unbiased vetting of vaccination stories
Drunk and stupid is no way to be remembered but it is an easy way to forget.

But I took them away from all that. Now they work for me.

That is a tough call since the anti-vax things is a conspiracy.
