Teenager so Grateful for Vaccination She Couldn't Leave Mom without a Sweet Gesture of Thanks
Alyssa Jackson showed her mother how happy she and her siblings are that they’re immune to infectious diseases. They surprised her with an ice cream cake that reads: “Thx 4 Vaccinating Us, Mom.”
The 17-year-old from Pittsburgh took to the social media platform, TikTok, recently to share a video that shows herself and her older sister Ashley designing a cake and giving it to their mom.

“Vaccinations are very important because you are not only exposing your child to certain threats. You are also bringing other children into it."
In an interview with HuffPost, Alyssa said that she and Ashley constantly try to make their mother laugh. She added that the plan to give their mother an ice cream took place naturally.
The sisters had quite recently gotten Alyssa's immunization records from the doctor when they stopped at Dairy Queen to get some food.

A BIT SKEPTICAL
They were sitting in the restaurant when they decided to get the cake. Since they valued their mother for getting them vaccinated, they wanted to write “Thx 4 Vaccinating Us, Mom” on it.
At the point when the two returned home, Alyssa said that their mother was somewhat dubious as they walked into the house with the ice cream because they were only expected to get vaccination records.
Speaking about her mom's first reaction, Alyssa explained, “She said, ‘You can’t smash that in my face.’” However, her mother had started to laugh when she saw what the cake said.
THE IMPORTANCE OF VACCINATIONS
Alyssa told HuffPost that she's delighted she has her shots and that other people ought to get theirs too.
“Vaccinations are very important because you are not only exposing your child to certain threats. You are also bringing other children into it,” she said.

These days, not vaccinating your child is an irresponsible and unsafe choice. An estimated of 1.4 million children under five years old worldwide die every year because of the absence of access to vaccines.
According to NHS, vaccinations are the highest resistance against the epidemics that used to kill or lastingly disable a huge number of kids and grown-ups.
