Ethan Lindenberger discussed his decision in an interview with NPR News that was released on Saturday.

In the interview, Lindenberger said he had gone without vaccines for diseases like measles, rubella, mumps and hepatitis for his entire life due to his mother's anti-vaccine beliefs.

He told the publication that his mother, Jill Wheeler, was influenced by online misinformation, including a debunked study that claims certain vaccines could lead to autism and a theory that claims vaccines were linked to brain damage.

Throughout his childhood, Lindenberger said his mother would tell him about the negative side effects of vaccines and how they were bad. He also said he thought it was normal for children not to receive vaccines.

But after he realized his other friends and classmates had all been vaccinated, Lindenberger said that's when he began to do his own research into the matter.

"When I started looking into it myself, it became very apparent that there was a lot more evidence in defense of vaccinations, in their favor," Lindenberger said.

Doctor told teen she had a sickness bug but days later she was barely alive and brain damaged

Doctor told teen she had a sickness bug but days later she was barely alive and brain damaged 'The doctors told us they had no idea how she was still alive . By that point the 14-year-old had received two life saving operations - the second of which was carried out because the abscess found in her brain was literally an inch away from killing her. Her parents had already been told to say their goodbyes by then. The surgery, incredibly, saved her. But she suffered two strokes as a result. By now her family, who just days earlier thought their daughter was suffering from a bug or a possible water infection, were now told she might now be brain damaged.

Lindenberger said he later approached his mother with research that debunked some of her claims, including a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explaining that vaccines do not cause autism.

"Her response was simply 'that's what they want you to think,' " Lindenberger said. "I was just blown away that you know, the largest health organization in the entire world would be written off with a kind of conspiracy theory-like statement like that."

After failing to change his mother's thinking on the matter, Lindenberger decided to get vaccinated on his own after turning 18.

As the publication also notes, the story comes at a time when more measles outbreaks have been reported in the Pacific Northwest, prompting more concern among minors about whether they are able to use their own consent to obtain vaccines.

In the month of January alone, measles were confirmed in ten states: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Washington, according to the CDC.

Washington officials also declared a public health emergency as an outbreak of measles spread across an anti-vaccination "hot spot" near Portland, Ore., late last month.
