Unvaccinated Adult Child Goes Against Parent’s Decision.
There is a lot of research on vaccines. As a result of vaccines, there has been a lot of disease go into the history books. This is often why many current generations are concern that their children may or may not get vaccines. Are they necessary? Do they need them? Should they get them? What about a waiver to prevent the need of them?
Here is another concern. Your child’s life post 18 years old. Yep, that age when children get the right to do whatever they want and parents cannot stop them. They can smoke, drink, have sex with whoever and whenever, and get vaccinations. Yes, they can reverse some of what you tried to stop them from having. Adult children can change their health history.
Why! Why would they? Because the lack of economic opportunities. The ability to go places and do things may require a needle stick and vaccination to allow them to do it. A good example is being a nurse. Many hospitals mandate a flu vaccine is mandatory and there are no expectations if you want to be employed.
True, a lot of children have been protected by “herd immunity”, where everyone else has gotten the vaccine and this protects those who cannot get the vaccine. Yet, more and more are deciding let “herd immunity” handle it. What is happening is outbreaks due to weakness in the “herd immunity”.
So while the parent may say no to the vaccinations, the adult child may say yes at 18. Concerned adult children can request a catch up schedule with their providers or the local health department and no, the adult child won’t get all of them on the same day. Just like getting the entire series over years, it will take a while to get caught up but not impossible.
