Anti-vaxers, PAY ATTENTION!

All of you as well. This is serious. The other day, I came upon a group on Facebook that supposedly encourages not vaccinating children. Well, bad news for those guys, their claims are baseless and dangerous to the lives of their children and others around them. This heart breaking story proves that, yet again.

Nicole Stellon O’Donnel, mother of an 8-year-old girl, shared what her daughter went through. Her tweets have not only gone viral but have also stressed upon the importance of vaccination.

A casual measles exposure is preventable. Parents can get their children vaccinated at the right time. Definitely, that was not the case here. Nicole continues with her story.

The consequences of the beliefs and actions of a family that does not believe in vaccinations do not stay limited to just them. Measles spreads fast, usually without any conclusive symptoms on the infected person for quite some time. One grocery visit in proximity of someone sick cost Nicole’s daughter the last amount of freedom she had.

Just imagine the panic that this caused.

There were other children with cancer who had to be moved and their treatment was disrupted.

That was not all. Nicole shed light on her daughter’s ordeal. She wrote, “This may not seem like a big deal, but imagine being eight, bald, skeletal, without eyebrows and eyelashes *and* having to wear a face mask in public.”

Other children in the clinic were at risk of getting infected and could have needed Neulasta shots. Thankfully, it did not come to that.

It would have been even more distressing for Nicole’s daughter had this happened during her school term. She has already missed out a lot.

Supportive words and more experiences started pouring in as this thread went viral.


It’s really baffling to know that there are parents who would endanger everyone around them by not getting their kids vaccinated.

It is a social contract!

Nicole concluded by sounding a simple but important message.

You don’t want to be someone who is ignorant and selfish to such a degree as to refuse vaccinations for your kids. The world does not need conspiracy theorists on this matter.
