Camille Echols launched into an impassioned plea on Facebook when her 11-year-old daughter was rushed to the emergency room.

Ashley Echols’ trip to the emergency room came after she was exposed to chickenpox. Camille took to Facebook to voice her frustration.

She spoke out against anti-vaccine advocates, who she feels has put children like her daughter in added danger of contracting life-threatening illnesses.

Ashley Echols had compromised immunity after she received a kidney transplant when she was just 2-years-old.

Doctors attempted to vaccinate her after the transplant, but due to her compromised immune system, it was feared that she would end up contracting the diseases they were vaccinating for.

Camille’s Facebook post tried to highlight the fact that anti-vaccine advocates who are afraid of their kids developing autism need to do some more research. She wrote:

“Please, if you are someone who believes your child will get autism from vaccines, PLEASE educate yourself. There isn’t a single peer-reviewed study that comes to that conclusion.”

For Camille and her daughter Ashley, the threat posed by the spread of preventable diseases is very real. She adds:

“And the people choosing to skip vaccinations put children like my daughter at risk. She has been through SO much already. And this was avoidable.”

Ashley will now receive immunoglobulin injections at a cost of $5,000. In addition, he will be treated in hospital, and with the incubation period for chickenpox being 7-21 days there’s still a very real chance that Ashley’s condition could worsen.

Camille’s post has sparked a massive debate with anti-vaccine advocates who were vocal in the comments.

Camille, who has worked in the medical field for ten years, waded into the comments section and was able to educate the public further.

She insists she doesn’t know for a fact that Ashley contracted the disease from an unvaccinated child, but according to her that’s not the point.

Camille is just trying to make parents aware of the fact that skipping vaccinations increases the risk of the unvaccinated children, but also that of any other children who may be immune compromised.
