While sitting in her doctor's waiting room, Sunni Mariah saw something hanging on the wall that caught her eye: a sign written by the Northern Rivers Vaccination Association about the dangers of not vaccinating your children. Sunni snapped a photo and posted it on Facebook, and now it's going completely viral.

She captioned the picture: "New sign at my Dr's office is throwing some serious shade. Vaccinate your kids."

And judging by what the sign says, getting your kiddos vaccinated is definitely a good idea. It reads:

Not vaccinating your kids leaves them vulnerable to disease their whole lives. When your daughter gets rubella when pregnant, how are you going to explain that you chose to leave her at risk? What will you say when she calls you and tells you she has cervical cancer because you decided that she wouldn't need the HPV vaccine? What do you tell your son when he breaks the news to you that he cannot have kids, thanks to the mumps that he got as a teenager? And what do you say when he gives influenza to his grandma? How do you explain that she won't be coming home from hospital? Not ever.

After running through several heartbreaking situations, the sign asks the reader three final questions: "Do you tell them that you didn't think these diseases were that serious? That you thought your organic, home-cooked food was enough to protect them? Do you say sorry?"

Unsurprisingly, Sunni's post has racked up 27,000 reactions and 184,000 shares since it was shared on July 20 — and it's easy to see why. Rather than simply glossing over stats from the CDC on how vaccines prevent eradicated diseases or explaining the importance of herd immunity, it hits on how skipping your kids' vaccines can severely hurt them in the long run. The glaring takeaway here? Get your children immunised on schedule.
