An anti-vaxx mom is getting roasted for her angry response to a school's sign requiring children be immunized in order to attend.

In a less unhinged world, schools wouldn't need to post signs requiring parents use modern medicine to protect their children from deadly diseases, but this is sadly not the reality.

In the past decade, the growing anti-vaxxer community has become outspoken, with celebrity talking heads like Jenny McCarthy pushing scientifically debunked misinformation about the "dangers" of vaccines.

Because of this, many schools are forced to draw up rules and requirements about vaccinations in order to protect children en masse. In response, some anti-vaxx parents are choosing to homeschool their kids or transfer to schools without requirements.

A recent exchange posted on Imgur shows how one anti-vaxx mom lashed out in response to a school's sign about shots.

Several people pointed out how crucial herd immunity is to general public health, so hopefully, the anti-vaxx mom lives near parents with more sense than her.

She responded by laying out why she believes vaccines are harmful to children (again, none of these reasons are backed by science).

When she laid out her beliefs that vaccines weaken children, other moms responded by shutting down her argument with facts.

While these exchanges can feel petty at times, particularly when it's a group of people piling on one lone mom, it's truly dangerous for people like this to send their unvaccinated children to school with others. Plus, their children deserve to live in homes that believe in the bounty of modern medicine.
