KUALA LUMPUR, March 12 (Bernama) -- Ethan Lindenberger, 18  testified before the Senate Health Committee last Tuesday in support of standard immunisation for children, defying his own mother who never vaccinated him as a child, Reuters reported.

The high school senior said in a statement during the hearing, “My mother is an anti vax advocate that believes vaccines cause autism, brain damage and do not benefit the health and safety society despite such opinion have been debunked numerous times by the scientific community.”

According to his mother, “It was just straight up fear of him getting this immunisations and having a bad reaction”.

It was reported that in November, Lindenberger turned to Reddit, a social media platform, asking for advice on how to get himself vaccinated.

Since then, he had been catching up on missed immunisations.
