Anti-vaxxer mother makes sick vow to infect Halloween trick or lollipops with CHICKEN POX and hands them out to children to help with natural immunity & # 39;
- The announcement appeared as a Facebook message, leaving parents shocked
- Some parents shared stories about how exposure to the virus can have fatal consequences for sick children
- The author of the position claimed to be a registered nurse, which caused serious concern
A sickening message in the social media of an alleged anti-vaxxer who swears to infect Halloween trick-or-treat lollipops with chickenpox has sent shock waves into an online community of passionate parents who pro-vaccinate.
The Facebook post first appeared on an anti-vaccination group on Thursday, shared by a woman claiming to be a registered nurse in Brisbane.
The message was then shared by the Light for Riley page – a foundation created to commemorate the page dedicated to Riley Hughes who died of whooping cough at four weeks old.
The woman claimed to help & # 39; with natural immunity & # 39; by sharing the potentially deadly virus with the community.

& # 39; So my beautiful son currently has chickenpox and we both decided to help others with natural immunity this Halloween! & # 39; read the message.
& # 39; We have opened and closed the package and can't wait to help others in our community. & # 39;
The author then offered to send infected candies to parents who were interested in exposing their children to the disease.
Riley & # 39; s heinous father Greg said the post are & # 39; skin crawly & # 39; made a screenshot to share with the online community.

& # 39; Have you ever seen anything that makes your skin crawl immediately? & # 39 ;, he wrote.
& # 39; How does this work: Get excited because your child becomes infected with the chickenpox virus; Formulate a plan to intentionally unconsciously infect other people's children by spreading contaminated lollipops to the community on Halloween.
& # 39; I am not often lost for words, but this is about to do it. & # 39;
A spokesperson for Light for Riley described the post as & # 39; gruesome & # 39; in a statement to Daily Mail Australia.

& # 39; It is horrible to think that people are considering deliberately infecting other people with a disease that can be fatal, is an appropriate thing to do, especially at a time like Halloween when children have fun with tricks or treatment, & # 39; it said.
& # 39; We have spoken with parents who have had children who are extremely ill or have even lost their lives due to chickenpox, and they would be absolutely shocked to hear that someone is doing this. & # 39;
Queensland Police confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that the mail is being investigated.
The police also said it was not possible to verify whether the mail is genuine.
Children & # 39; s Health Queensland responded to the post and revealed that there were no current or former employees with the name of the post's author (photo pictured)

While The courier mail reported that the controversial post could be a hoax, it left a sour taste in the mouth of the parents.
Some had harrowing stories about how exposure to the virus was almost fatal for their children.

& # 39; My son was five when he was exposed to the chickenpox virus. He was admitted to the hospital because he had smallpox on the whites of his eyes, mouth, throat, anus and his entire digestive tract. He did not eat and temporarily lost his eyesight, & shared a mother.
& # 39; This is rancid. My daughter ended the treatment for leukemia in July. During treatment and probably even now, she still needs to be vaccinated again. Chickenpox can make her so sick or worse, & # 39; revealed another.
& # 39; This makes my blood boil. My daughter got chickenpox when she was 2.5 years old. She was fully vaccinated and it still took a huge toll on her. I can't imagine it affects an non-immunized baby, & someone else said.
