Teen Mom’s Kailyn Lowry said she won’t vaccinate her children against coronavirus if doctors and researchers are able to create a vaccine.
Kailyn previously said her 2-year-old son hasn’t been vaccinated at all and her 6-year-old son received some vaccines but is on a schedule of their own making.
Don’t get me wrong: It’s always a bad time to spew anti-vax nonsense. But as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases and related deaths continues to increase, now seems like the worst possible time for fearful skeptics to claim that vaccines are more trouble than they’re worth. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what Teen Mom’s Kailyn Lowry is doing on Twitter right now.
For the record, vaccines save lives, refusing to vaccinate a child puts others at risk, and the claim that vaccines cause autism was later retracted by the medical journal that published it, so don’t even go there. (The doc who wrote it also had his medical license revoked.)
Now that you have all that info, here’s what Kailyn, who hasn’t vaccinated her 2-year-old son yet, said when one of her followers saw her tweeting about Netflix and took it as an opportunity to grill her about her anti-vax stance. When she was asked, “I’m curious, Kail, when a vaccine for this [corona] virus is made, will you or the kids get one?” Kailyn responded, “Absolutely not.” And when she was reminded that people are dying because of coronavirus, Kailyn was like, “Understood. I know people as well. That’s why I’m staying home.”
Of course, people are calling her out for continuing to spread dangerous misinformation surrounding vaccines and a vaccine that hasn’t even been created yet. One former fan even wrote, “Been a fan and a follower for years. Always admired your tenacity but your response is absolutely irresponsible in a time like this. I just can’t call myself a fan anymore.”
