Ohio teen Ethan Lindenberger defies his mother and gets vaccinated




(Newser)

Ethan Lindenberger grew up in Norwalk, Ohio, with an anti-Vaxxer mother who refused to catch him. Now that he is 18 years old, Lindenberger is making headlines for his decision to resist his mother and get himself vaccinated, USA Today . "My parents think vaccines are a kind of government program," the teenager wrote about Reddit when he first decided to ask for advice. "God knows how I live." He received more than 1,000 answers with detailed advice, and Lindenberger began shots against hepatitis A, hepatitis B, influenza and HPV, reports the Washington Post . On Tuesday, Lindenberger went on ABC's Good Morning America to tell his story.

"I was just growing up when I heard that I had not been vaccinated because it was best for me," he said. After seeing different opinions on the Internet, he researched himself and concluded that his parents had been wrong. "It was like he was spitting on me," says Lindenberger's mother, Jill Wheeler, Undark's website. In drafting GMA Wheeler said she refuses vaccinations because she heard of bad reactions: "It scared me." Some states are beginning to make it easier for "mature minors" to make their own medical decisions, ABC history notes, but most states continue to leave that responsibility entirely in the hands of their parents. (A decrease in vaccinations is blamed for this measles outbreak.)
