EVERY Anti-vaxxer Needs to See: Mom Urges Other Parents to Vaccinate Their Kids After Her Baby Was Hospitalized With a Horrific Disease

A mother from Queensland, Australia wanted her voice to be heard by every parent in the world urging them to vaccinate their kids, after her little baby was hospitalized with chicken pox.

Kayley Burke shared photos on Facebook of her 11-month-old boy who was too young to be vaccinated, covered in horrific blisters and scabs from this terrible disease which also was the reason for a secondary infection in his tiny body.

Burke uploaded these photos in a single post on Facebook which so far has been shared over than 4.300 times.

In that same post she wrote the following:

First, I hope the child recovers completely. It’s awful to see children suffering like this. However, two main points: (1) the problem is not people refusing to vaccinate. The varicella vaccine is LIVE. That means a vaccinated person can transmit it. See, e.g., measles virus can be transmitted FROM THE VACCINE STRAIN http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11858860/ (2) If the mother was immune to varicella and breastfeeding, this would not have happened. So either the mother did not vaccinate herself, did not breastfeed, or never had a natural infection. Natural infection and breastfeeding is the most effective protection against these types of situations. Also, this looks like a secondary staph infection so the mother may not have been advised on how to care for the child’s lesions.

Um, not everyone can breastfeed, nor wants to breastfeed. Dont victim blame.

The older sibling had received the vaccine and then became symptomatic. The older recently vaccinated child shed and infected the infant. The mother gave the child ibuprofen, which is contraindicated in chicken pox infections because it can cause secondary infection. She either gave them medication without proper consultation or was given poor medical advise. That isn’t clear. Had the older child not been vaccinated and the mother not given NSAIDs to the infant, the baby would not be sick. Even if the baby had contracted chicken pox from the sibling, the secondary action is what caused the severity. The baby would have had just a normal course of chicken pox without ibuprofen.

Um, “DrWessly”,

Lemme get your two points straight:

1. So, Varicella is alive and contagious even in immunized people, yet…
2. You infer that the mother “did not vaccinate herself”, ergo infecting her kid.

It seems I can’t reconcile your bogus statements.

Parents: don’t pay attention to people who call themselves “dr” on the web. Consult with a real one and vaccinate your children, for their benefit.

It’s most definitely a live virus. Weakened but live. So, it can be easily spread. She either wasnt educated by her doctor or didn’t listen. Her older child shouldn’t have been around her 11month old. Besides that she let it get bad. Looks like the baby has a bacterial skin infection. Also if its around the babies eyes that’s no good. She should have went back in. Maybe she didn’t take the baby with to the older childs appointment. Maybe she didnt even take him to the appointment and dad did. Either way its kind of the parents fault. The pediatrician would have told them not to use ibuprofen knowing about the 11 month old. Thats horrible if their doctor was that negligent.
