Anti-vaxxer revolt grows on Reddit among teens

Robert Kennedy Jr. speaks at an anti-vaccination rally at the Capitol in Olympia Wash. on Feb. 8. Cases of viral illnesses are up 50 percent worldwide

Her son said it was never his intention to blame his parents or make them look dumb, saying, "That came from a place of frustration and trying to deal with this issue and find common ground".

As soon as Lindenberger became a legal adult, he said, he chose to get vaccinated despite his parents' objections. The other must be a paperwork mistake, she said.

'I grew up not knowing that you go to the health department and get a shot in your shoulder in your upper arm for a bunch of really big diseases that could have a lot of really bad side effects and a lot of bad implications. "He continued, "I was just blown away that you know, the largest health organization in the entire world would be written off with a kind of conspiracy theory-like statement like that", adding that his mother 'kind of fell into this echo chamber, and got more and more misinformation".

A few months ago, Lindenberger, who's from OH, sought help on Reddit.

'Across the US, minors generally can not consent to their own health care; however, there are several federal and state laws that permit a minor to consent to his or her own medical treatment in specific circumstances, but it does not usually include immunizations.

Senator Amy Klobuchar joins crowded presidential race
Jack Considine, Dave Brave Heart said there's been a great deal of speculation that Klobuchar would be announcing her candidacy. Next week, Klobuchar will begin a multi-state tour with stops to Wisconsin and Iowa, according to a press release.

The online advice appears to have helped because a month later Lindenberger posted an update to his original Reddit post, in which he said he had finally received his vaccines.

Almost everyone who has been diagnosed with measles so far has not received either shots.

"I am an underage teenager in Washington, whose mother is against vaccines", wrote another teen, also on Reddit.

As the worst measles outbreak in NY state in decades rages on, health officials have launched an "aggressive, multi-pronged" attack against the disease that has sickened more than 200 people in five months.

Health workers administer house-to-house measles vaccination to children in Payatas, Quezon City on February 7, 2019, amid measles outbreak in parts of the Philippines. In the post, Lindenberger asked for practical advice on how to begin the vaccination process, and said he had never spoken to anyone about it. The 18-year-old and his parents disagree over whether Ethan should be vaccinated against serious contagious viruses like measles, mumps, chickenpox, polio-or any disease for that matter, since his parents are committed anti-vaxxers. Officials also had confirmed one case in King County, Washington, which includes Seattle, and four cases in Multnomah County, Oregon, which includes Portland. Minnesota is a state where guardians can opt out of required vaccinations if they philosophically object to them.

Trump orders government to prioritize artificial intelligence
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will implement standards that support trustworthy AI systems. AI researchers will need to have computer models, computing resources, and federal data to kickstart projects.

The tension has complicated his home life.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently found that the percentage of children under 2 years old who haven't received any vaccinations has quadrupled in the last 17 years, rising from.3% in 2001 to 1.3% in 2015.

The patient, a Vancouver resident, was diagnosed on Thursday as having the virus, but the period during which it is considered infectious has since passed, said Shaf Hussain, a spokesman for Vancouver Coastal Health.

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