A 15-year-old boy has turned to Reddit to ask users for advice on how to get vaccinated without the consent of his anti-vaxx mother.
The boy – known only as Danny691261 – has been unsuccessfully trying to convince his mother that ‘vaccines are safe’ for the past four years.
In his state ‘minors’ are reportedly only able to give consent for the hepatitis B jab, with their parents having to sign off all other vaccines.
After questioning whether he could forge his mother’s signature, Reddit users were quick to warn the teen this is a crime.
Feeling he had exhausted his options, Danny signed off saying it looks like he is going to have to wait until he turns 18.
‘Danny’ said: ‘I am writing because I am the 15 year old son of an anti-vaccine parent.
‘I have spent the last 4 years trying to convince my mother that vaccines are safe. I haven’t succeeded.
‘So instead I am trying to research how to be vaccinated without my mother’s consent.’
Although he admitted his mother would be ‘livid’, he added there would be nothing she could to reverse the effects of the vaccine.
