There are sadly still many people in the world who believe the false conspiracy theories which claim vaccines are harmful to every child.
On Twitter, one such woman named Lisa Bedrick posted a distraught status about how her husband went against her wishes and did the unthinkable:
he got their children vaccinated!
I have a big prayer request. My husband and mother in law have my oldest daughter with them at their house. They got her 4 vaccines today without asking me. I am anti vaccines. Please pray she will be ok. 😔 Have your kids always been ok after vaccine shots?

Twitter had some important lessons for Lisa.
"Have your kids always been ok after vaccine shots?"
I have my children have and my grandchildren and every person have known since childhood and throughout my 45 year working life "have been vaccinated" ….and I have never seen a single example of any detrimental effects

The science is clear, Vaccines are safe. The people who say different are mistaken or foolish. I do not want to be hurtful but do your research outside facebook.

Please don't be anti vax. All four of my children are fully vaccinated and fine. We are seeing an increase in diseases we almost eradicated due to anti vaccine folks. Your children are better protected now than they were prior.

Without fail, every single person online sided with Lisa’s husband.
Your husband did the right thing

I have Crohns and I am on immunosuppressives. My ex was having a party and I found out later that he had only invited families who were up to date on their vaccines so I would be safe.

Thank God your husband and mother-in-law have more sense than you. I get it. You’re thinking is out of love but I’ve looked through a lot of anti-vaccine info and I can’t believe people like you fall for this shit.

The great irony is that Lisa’s children are much better off thanks to her husband’s betrayal.
I am so sorry to hear that your daughter has a greatly reduced chance of both dying from preventable diseases and has now joined the rest of humanity in protecting the lives those who can't be immunized from those diseases.
It's a tragic day for all of us.

Your daughter will be fine. She is now protected from a variety of preventable diseases. I worry more about your unvaccinated children. Hopefully your husband and mother-in-law will get them vaccinated, too.

Anti-vaxxers believe in a conspiracy theory with absolutely no basis in fact.
The anti-vaccine propaganda was originally spread by Russian trolls. Seriously. Have some sense. These vaccines save lives. Period.

Vaccines are not only safe, they save lives. This is well-known. There have been many longitudinal research studies that demonstrate this fact conclusively. Science, data & facts are your friends. Believe them. Ignore the conspiracy theories that are based on ignorance, paranoia.

Hopefully, Lisa will learn her lesson and turn over a new leaf.
I pray he divorce you and take the children due to neglect from your side.
Also, I'm sending my blessing to him as a role model for all fathers, putting the children b4 crazy wives.

I died as soon as I was vaccinated 🙁

Glad to hear they did the right thing for your child and the community you live in.

Sadly, however, it seems being anti-vax isn’t Lisa’s only flaw.
As if this tweet isn’t bad enough, here’s another gem from this lost cause. pic.twitter.com/UXa6VrSalw

At the end of the day, spreading anti-vax ideas is nothing but dangerous.

Vaccines save lives. Tens of millions of lives every year. Vaccinate.

If medically able, every responsible parent should have their children vaccinated…even if one of them doesn’t think so!
