Teenager secretly gets vaccinated and blasts 'conspiracy theory-believing' anti-vax parents: 'God knows how I'm alive'



A teenager has told how to be secretly got vaccinated against the wishes of his parents, which he claimed believed to be debunked anti-vaccine "conspiracy theories", they read on the internet.

Ethan Lindenberger, 18, appealed for help on a Reddit forum, asking which vaccines he should obtain, as he said he had never received any, because "my parents are kind of stupid and do not believe in vaccines". "God knows how I'm still alive," he wrote.

After reading the advice, and consulting with a pastor, the teenager last December walked into a department of heath office in Norwalk, Ohio, and obtained vaccines for hepatitis A , hepatitis B, influenza and HPV.

As a child he missed out on receiving the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, that most states demand children have to attend school, and which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends is given in two doses.

"The United States' long-standing vaccine safety program closely and constantly monitors the safety of vaccines," it says.
