Wheeler. who said that records showing Ethan getting two shots in 2002 are mistaken, that he only got a shot for tetanus after he cut himself, has some unusual ideas of her own, asserting, "Polio, if you really research polio, it was nearly completely eradicated, nearly gone, there was nearly no cases of polio when they introduced the oral vaccine".

Lindenberger says he began researching the benefits of vaccination years prior and presented the information to his mother. According to the Washington Department of Health, almost one in four Clark County kindergarten students during the 2017-18 school year did not get all their immunizations; at three different elementary schools, over 40% of kindergarteners did not get vaccinated before they started kindergarten.

"Her opinions are mostly not backed by science, so very largely illogical or rooted in misinformation", said Lindenberger, about disagreeing with his mom.

'I'm also afraid I'd go somewhere that up charges vaccines way more than somewhere just down the street. "You did make a bad decision and I'm gonna go fix it'".

In Washington, a self-described underage teen wrote in January that his or her mother would not allow vaccines.

The report comes as both Canada and the United States face another year of measles outbreaks such as one now underway in Washington State and OR, where support for anti-vaccination has been notable.

Before the measles vaccination program started in 1963, an estimated 3 to 4 million people got measles each year in the United States.

"Measles is exquisitely contagious".

According to USA Today, Harris, who is from Clark County, the region where the majority of the 52 confirmed measles cases have been reported, residents are "concerned about our community, its immunity and the community safety".

"I am writing because I am the 15-year-old son of an anti-vaccine parent", reads a plea posted on Reddit four months ago. People who have previously had the infection do not need immunization.

The tension has complicated his home life. He says he regrets insulting the intelligence of his parents in the original Reddit post and urges other teenagers to be transparent and positive with parents when seeking permission to immunize. But, according to NPR, when she found out she could opt out of immunizations, she didn't vaccinate her youngest five children, including Lindenberger.

The respite from new diagnoses and a low number of suspected cases could signal a slow in the spread of the disease, however public health officials say that won't be sure until at least 21 days without a new diagnosis.

"It breaks my heart that she could get measles and she'd be done", Lindenberger said.
