The peak of flu season is upon us, which means doctors will be urging the public to get their vaccines, and, as we know, along with the push to get shots will come the anti-vaxxers with fake facts. Last year the Center for Disease Control reported 183 influenza-associated pediatric deaths and one already this year. Despite the data that backs up the antidotes for vaccine-preventable diseases, there are still people who refuse to vaccinate their kids and they are not only putting their own children at risk but others as well.

Mother Nicole Stellon O’Donnell recently took to Twitter to show the devastating effect not vaccinating your kids can have on other people’s children
