WHEN it comes to vaccinating children, the debate for and against can be heated with parents often having strong views on the matter.
Now, on a Reddit thread of doctors sharing their own experiences – one mother revealed what happened when she decided not to invite her unvaccinated child to her kid's birthday party.
"After I sent out, I found out that one of her friends from dance was unvaccinated," the mother wrote.
"My daughter's best friend is in remission from leukaemia and is immunocompromised. An unvaxxed kid could kill her.
"I uninvited the dance kid and very nicely explained the situation.
"Her mother loses her with ** t and tries to get us kicked out of the dance school they attend."
The mum then goes on to explain what happened when the owner of the dance school found out – revealing the other parent's plan backfired pretty quickly.
She said: "The dance school owner is an old lady and she had no idea that there were idiots these days that did not work so she implemented a new rule that students had to be up to date and the unvaxxed kid had to find a new dance school.
"I feel bad about the kid, but her mother is a sociopath. Herd immunity saves lives when it comes to kids fighting cancer."
Other users on the post were equally horrified, with one writing: "This is the thing about antiquasors that really drive me nuts, I feel terrible for their kids getting put at risk, but it's even worse than that, they are putting at risk anyone who is immune compromised!
"Elderly, sick, pregnant, new born babies … It's selfish and irresponsible."
