Vaccination is a very important thing and it’s also worth to be thankful for. Check this inspiring story of a teen who chose the sweetest way possible to say ‘thank you’ to her mother for being vaccinated.

“Thx 4 Vaccinating Us, Mom”

Alyssa Jackson, a 17-year-old from Pittsburgh, decided to let her mother know how glad she and her siblings are for being immune to infectious diseases and get an ice cream cake that reads: “Thx 4 Vaccinating Us, Mom.”

“Vaccinations are very important because you are not only exposing your child to certain threats. You are also bringing other children into it,” she told HuffPost.

Alyssa decided to make her stance public and posted a video on the social media platform TikTok of the two sisters decorating the cake and presenting it to their mom. The video soon went viral.

It all started when the sisters picked up Alyssa’s immunization records from the doctor, which she needed to transfer to a new school, when they stopped at Dairy Queen to get some food.

“While sitting there, we made the decision to get the cake, and we wanted to write something on it,” Alyssa told HuffPost. “And we do appreciate her for getting us vaccinated.”

The teens decorated the cake on their own and explained that when they got home, their mother was a bit “skeptical” as they walked into the house with the icy delight since they were just supposed to pick up immunization records.

But once her mom saw what the cake said, “she had a good laugh and I honestly think she appreciated the gesture,” Alyssa told HuffPost.

Needless to say, the teenager is happy she has her shots and thinks others should get theirs as well. Though Alyssa thinks the decision to get vaccinated is up to the individual.

“I feel like [people] should do what they believe in. Even if that means they won’t get vaccinated,” Alyssa said. “It sucks, and they should do it, but I have no right to interfere with other people’s lives.”

Why is it important to get vaccinated?

Vaccination protects children from serious illness and complications of vaccine-preventable diseases which can include amputation of an arm or leg, paralysis of limbs, hearing loss, convulsions, brain damage, and death. Vaccine-preventable diseases, such as measles, mumps, and whooping cough, are still a threat.

By getting vaccinated, you protect yourself against serious diseases and reduce the risk to your family and community.

Vaccination does not weaken the immune system. On the contrary, it uses its resources and teaches it how to defend itself.

And remember, vaccine-preventable infections are much more dangerous than vaccines themselves.
