A mum has been ridiculed for asking an anti-vaccination group how to protect her three-year-old from an outbreak of measles.
The mum posed the question to the Vaccine Education Network: Natural Health Anti-Vaxx Community group on Facebook.
“My three-year-old is not vaccinated and there is currently a measles outbreak in my state,” she wrote.
“Any suggestions for precautions I can take to protect her would be very appreciated.”
A screenshot of the post was shared on Twitter and it has since been re-tweeted more than 12,700 times.
One woman labelled the mum “incredibly selfish” while a man asked, “can people really be this stupid?”
Another man compared not vaccinating children to not allowing them to wear a seatbelt in a car.
“I don’t understand why it’s unlawful to allow your child to not wear a seatbelt in the car, but it’s lawful to not vaccinate your kids?” the man tweeted. “Potential consequences of both is death.”
