Question: 

I am pro vaccine and my ex girlfriend is a serious antivaxxer, legally can I still get my daughter vaccinated ?

Answer: 

Parents have the authority to provide consent for their child except when their decision-making rights have been legally revoked. So, the answer to your question depends on whether you are in a position to legally provide consent for your child. If you are, the consent of one parent to immunize a child provides the immunizer the authority to proceed.
