“Any suggestions for precautions I can take to protect her would be very much appreciated.”
That’s what one unnamed anti-vax mom wants to know. Her now viral question has sparked a lot of attention on social media, where Twitter users are quick to offer some advice—get her vaccinated.
The mom originally posted the message in a private anti-immunization Facebook group, and it has since been shared to the public.
“My 3-year-old is not vaccinated and there is currently a measles outbreak in my state,” the mom explains in the group.
The best way to protect your kid from the disease is the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. The immunization is highly effective and not related to autism. In fact, the research study that initially suggested the measles vaccine/autism link was retracted by the journal that published it.
