All Studies Claiming No MMR Vaccine-Autism Link Invalid – According to Merck’s Vaccine Director, former US CDC Director & the US HRSA

A recent article in the Whiteout Press appears to have reignited the debate about vaccines causing autism and has now been reported  by Fox News in Austin Texas.  But what both appear to overlook is the direct evidence from leading US health agencies and health officials which discredits all the prior evidence they have used and which is still being used on the internet and in the media to claim there is no autism-MMR vaccine link.  [Full quotes and links below].

Fox News in Austin Texas reported yesterday on the Whiteout Press article: Article stirs autism and vaccine debate Aug 15, 2013 By Noelle Newton KTBC Fox 7 Austin Texas USA.  And here is the Whiteout Press article:  “Courts Quietly Confirm MMR Vaccine Causes Autism” 27th July 2013.

Here is the problem for health officials now.  The US Heath Resources Services Agency and vaccine maker Merck’s vaccine division Director Julie Gerberding when heading up the US Centers for Disease Control as its Director both separately confirmed on and to national broadcast US news channels back in 2008 that any vaccine can cause an autistic condition [full quotes and sources below]. 

That confirmation immediately made completely invalid and useless all the “tobacco-science” statistical studies health officials had used to claim there was no connection between a child developing autism from the MMR vaccine.

Because researchers claimed to find no difference they assumed no link.  But they found no link because all those studies were intentionally carried out on the basis that only the MMR vaccine was a cause of autism and not all vaccines.

So now all those previous studies compared kids with autism who had MMR vaccine against kids with autism who had other vaccines and got autism from the other vaccines.  If you go shopping and compare all the candy in one store with all the candy all other stores all you will find is that its all candy.  Some might be Hersheys and some not.  But it is still candy.  Autistic conditions are like candy just in the sense there are all kinds and flavors but in a spectrum.  Of course that is where the similarity ends because the spectrum of autistic conditions is from the most debilitating to the least.  There is nothing sweet or attractive about that.

And if you want evidence of this then watch the British rate of childhood autism diagnoses increase with each change in the vaccine schedule.  This is a chart from a peer reviewed paper by US authors and researchers which only looked at the MMR vaccine and not the other vaccines. 

You can see the MMR vaccination rate is stable throughout [see nearly horizontal black line near top of the chart] but the autism risk jumps up [see red line on the chart].  Here at CHS we have added the notes showing when the changes to the British vaccine schedule took place.  With each change the risk of an autism diagnosis for children increased substantially:



The graph above is adapted from a 2001British Medical Journal paper by Jick et al: Mumps, measles, and rubella vaccine and the incidence of autism recorded by general practitioners: a time trend analysis” BMJ 2001; 322 : 460 – 463 24 February.

The admissions by the US CDC Director Julie Gerberding and those by the US HRSA were not given voluntarily.  They only confirmed the true position when put under pressure by the media in 2008 when the Hannah Poling story broke about the US Court compensating a little girl who became autistic after getting NINE vaccines ALL ON THE SAME DAY.

But everyone overlooks that and the same old junk studies are being quoted all over the media and internet as evidence there is no link when they are completely useless as evidence for that proposition.

And then some studies looked for higher autism rates in the MMR vaccinated-autism kids. That is like looking to see whether under the wrapper of one brand like Hershey’s there is chocolate candy and under the wrappers of other brands like M&M’s it is chocolate candy or something of a different flavor or sweeter or less sweet.

The authors of the study into the British autism increase even admit the graph [see above] shows there must be environmental factors other than the MMR involved in the increases claiming [emphasis added]:-

“... the data provide evidence that no correlation exists between the prevalence of MMR vaccination and the rapid increase in the risk of autism over time. The explanation for the marked increase in risk of the diagnosis of autism in the past decade remains uncertain. ….. The increase ….. could be due to …… environmental factors not yet identified.

The data show when correlated with major changes in the UK childhood vaccination programme the most likely “environmental factors not yet identified” are the vaccines.  With each major change to the UK’s childhood vaccination programme cases of childhood autism increased substantially.

This is how the risk of a diagnosis increased [this is just childhood autism diagnoses – Aspergers is not included – note that 70% of UK ASDs are Aspergers]:

  • it first increased by 3 times with the introduction of the MMR vaccine in October 1988 [from between 1 to 4 in 10,000 it increased to 12 in 10,000];

As anyone can see from this, the studies needed to be done are comparing the total health of vaccinated kids with never vaccinated kids.   But the US CDC will never do them because never vaccinated kids are much healthier so showing the vaccine programmes pursued by the US CDC for decades do more harm than good.  The argument used to claim the studies cannot be done is junk – they claim it is unethical to prove a vaccine is safe to use or dangerous so we cannot do the studies.  This is on the basis it is unethical not to vaccinate a few kids to make sure millions upon millions of kids will be safe.  It cannot be unethical if done with consent and where the comparatively few kids who are not vaccinated can still be vaccinated after the studies are over. Surely, if “herd immunity” worked those few would still be protected by it?

And of course it is unethical to give any drug of unproven safety to any child.

Here is what the US HRSA told CBS news reporter Sharyl Attkisson back in 2008 about children compensated for injuries caused by a vaccine – any vaccine – not simply the MMR vaccine:

We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.Text of May 5th 2008 email from US HRSA to Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News]

So according to the HRSA vaccines cause encephalopathies [general brain injuries] which result in autism and/or seizures in children.

Here is what US CDC Director Julie Gerberding said on national US broadcast TV back in 2008:

Now, we all know that vaccines can occasionally cause fevers in kids. So if a child was immunized, got a fever, had other complications from the vaccines. And if you’re predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism.

You can even watch Gerberding saying it to Dr Sanjay Gupta of CNN here on YouTube.  If you watch the video [below on this page] you will then realise Dr Julie Gerberding is personally knowingly responsible for the biggest longest running programme of child abuse in the history of the planet – knowingly causing autism in hundreds of thousands of US children using vaccines [currently around 1 in 50 US kids depending on State]- and when she was in a position to stop it dead.  She then left the CDC and continued where she left off to join vaccine maker Merck as its vaccines division Director.  The CDC was officially castigated by the US Senate in an official report CDC Off Centeras an agency which “cannot demonstrate it is controlling disease“  but which was managing to spend US$11 billion in US tax dollars every year not doing what even its name says it is supposed to – Center for Disease Control.

Vaccination Causes Autism – Say US Government & Merck’s Director of Vaccines

Posted on June 30, 2010 by ChildHealthSafety

A New Scientist article 29 June 2010 by Jim Giles states:-

We still do not know what causes autism.

Desperate measures: The lure of an autism cure

That is not correct. Here we set out four ways autistic conditions are caused and confirmed by statements from the current President of pharmaceutical giant Merck’s Vaccines Division, by US Government agencies, by the US Federal Court and in formally published academic journal papers.

If you read nothing else we strongly recommend you read this PDF Download – Text of May 5th 2008 email from US HRSA to Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News].  In it the US Health Resources Services Administration [HRSA] state to CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson

We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.” [Text added 10 April 2011]

The first known cause of autism was rubella virus. So not only is New Scientist an unreliable source of information, this cause of autism has been known since the 1960s. And rubella virus is one of the three live viruses in the MMR vaccine.

… rubella (congenital rubella syndrome) is one of the few proven causes of autism.“  Walter A. Orenstein, M.D. US as Assistant Surgeon General, Director National Immunization Program in a letter to the UK’s Chief Medical Officer 15 February 2002.

rubella virus is one of the few known causes of autism.” US Center for Disease Control.
“FAQs (frequently asked questions) about MMR Vaccine & Autism”  [ED 8/Apr/12: This is the web archive of the CDC page – you will need to search in or scroll down the page to see the text.  As papers cited on the original page by the CDC as evidence for no link with the vaccine have been steadily discredited it seems the CDC has decided to remove the page and it seems someone has been deleting the archived versions of the page from the web archive too].

Ziring PR. Congenital rubella: the teenage years. Pediatr Ann. 1997;6: 762–770

People who are pre-disposed to have a mitochondrial dysfunction can develop autistic conditions following vaccination.  The current President of Merck’s Vaccines Division, Julie Gerberding confirmed to CBS News when she was Director of the US Centres for Disease Control that:

….. if you’re predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism.

HOUSE CALL WITH DR. SANJAY GUPTA – Unraveling the Mystery of Autism; Talking With the CDC Director; Stories of Children with Autism; Aging with Autism – Aired March 29, 2008 – 08:30   ET

Mitochondrial dysfunction is claimed to be “rare” but is not.  It can apply to a minimum of 20% of cases.

And this was said when Gerberding was then head of the US Centres for Disease Control – budget US$11 billion.  It followed from  award winning author and journalist David Kirby breaking the story of the Hannah Poling case, secretly settled by the US Government.  It was after this story broke that it started to be acknowledged that autism has an “environmental” cause and is not solely an “internal” condition [ie not determined solely by genetics]: AUTISM – US Court Decisions and Other Recent Developments – It’s Not Just MMR

[Gerberding went from the US agency charged with promoting vaccines [CDC] directly to become vaccine maker Merck’s Director of Vaccines Division: Dr. Julie Gerberding Named President of Merck Vaccines21 Dec 2009 – Merck & Co., Inc.

Autistic conditions can result from encephalopathy following vaccination.  The US Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) confirmed to CBS News that of 1322 cases of vaccine injury compensation settled out of court by the US Government in secret settlements:-

Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.[PDF Download – Text of email from US HRSA to Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News]

Measles and mumps are two of the three live viruses in the MMR vaccine. Exposure to live measles or mumps viruses can cause encephalitis:-

measles and mumps can cause significant disability, including encephalitis

The Pediatrician’s Role in the Diagnosis and Management of Autistic Spectrum Disorder in Children – PEDIATRICS Vol. 107 No. 5 May 2001

So there is direct evidence that live measles, mumps or rubella viruses separately can cause encephalitis leading to autism.

More troubling is that this has been known for a long time.  So the risks of giving very young children a vaccine containing three live viruses all at once were known. These two World Health Organisation papers published nearly 40 years ago set out the hazards:

Virus-associated immunopathology : animal models and implications for human disease”:

1. Effects of viruses on the immune system, immune-complex diseases, and antibody-mediated immunologic injury Bulletin of The World Health Organisation. 1972; 47(2): 257-264.

2. Cell-mediated immunity, autoimmune diseases, genetics, and implications for clinical research Bulletin of the World Health Organisation. 1972; 47(2): 265-274.

Autistic conditions can result from acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) following MMR vaccination as held by the US Federal Court in the case of Bailey Banks.  In his conclusion, US Federal Court Special Master Abell ruled that Petitioners had proven that the MMR had directly caused a brain inflammation illness called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) which, in turn, had caused the autism spectrum disorder PDD-NOS in the child:

The Court found that Bailey’s ADEM was both caused-in-fact and proximately caused by his vaccination. It is well-understood that the vaccination at issue can cause ADEM, and the Court found, based upon a full reading and hearing of the pertinent facts in this case, that it did actually cause the ADEM. Furthermore, Bailey’s ADEM was severe enough to cause lasting, residual damage, and retarded his developmental progress, which fits under the generalized heading of Pervasive Developmental Delay, or PDD [an autism spectrum disorder]. The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine, and that this chain of causation was… a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to Pervasive Developmental Delay.

[Banks v. HHS (Case 02-0738V, 2007 U.S. Claims LEXIS 254, July 20, 2007)].

And what does not cause autism?

Autism is not “caused” by “genes”

Dr Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. the 16th and current Director of the US$30.5 billion budget National Institutes of Health [nominated by President Obama: NIH News Release 17th August 2009 ] stated in evidence to US House of Representatives Committee May 2006 when Director of the US National Human Genome Research Institute:

Recent increases in chronic diseases like diabetes, childhood asthma, obesity or autism cannot be due to major shifts in the human gene pool as those changes take much more time to occur. They must be due to changes in the environment, including diet and physical activity, which may produce disease in genetically predisposed persons.

Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. evidence to US House of Representatives Committee May 2006

Collins controls the US $30.5 billion annual medical research budget and is a leading medical doctor and geneticist who led the Human Genome Project.

Autistic conditions affect 1 in 100 US children.  They affect 1 in 64 British children [1 in 40 are boys] according to a Cambridge University study.


Conclusions: The prevalence estimate of known cases of ASC, using different methods of ascertainment converges around 1%. The ratio of known to unknown cases means that for every three known cases there are another two unknown cases. This has implications for planning diagnostic, social and health services.”

  2. measles is highly contagious and can kill.the true comparison is between deaths in a measles outbreak between vaccinated and unvaccinated compared to the prevelence of autistic symptoms in the same sample?is an autistic child preferable to a dead one:I choose life its worth the risk

    [ED: Not true Bill. In 80,000 measles cases in the UK in the past 20 years no healthy child has died. Two very sick immunocompromised children died in those 20 years and they could have died at any time anyway. So what do you want Bill – 1 in 50-60 children autistic and all the other health problems vaccines cause vs 1 child in every 40,000 measles cases dying? Your call Bill. Seems a no brainer however.]

  3. While I accept that rubella virus infection by injection can cause “autism”, the first vaccine that was linked to “autism” was the smallpox virus in a 1976 German article, Eggers C. [Autistic syndrome (Kanner) and vaccination against smallpox (author’s transl)]. Klin Padiatr. 1976 Mar; 188(2): 172-180. [German]
    3-4 weeks following an otherwise uncomplicated first vaccination against smallpox a boy, then aged 15 months and last seen at the age of 5 1/2 years, gradually developed a complete Kanner syndrome. The question whether vaccination and early infantile autism might be connected is being discussed. A causal relationship is considered extremely unlikely. But vaccination is recognized as having a starter function for the onset of autism”.

    Having repeatedly referenced this article in published reviews, I am continually surprised that: 1) no one seems to cite this 1976 article and 2) few seem to remember that the “symptoms of autism” are the “same” as the symptoms of low-dose organic-mercury poisoning by Thimerosal-preserved vaccines that are still in use in the USA (mainly in the influenza vaccines given to pregnant and lactating women and developing children after 2002 as well as today to all adults annually) and other countries that still use Thimerosal-containing vaccines in their routine early childhood vaccination programs.

    Interestingly, the latest USA report that found a 2% level for “autism”, reported:
    “CDC and HRSA issue report on changes in prevalence of parent-reported Autism Spectrum Disorder in school-aged children”, issued on March 20, 2013; last visited on 3 August 2013 (emphasis added):
    “The report was co-authored by HRSA and data collection was conducted by the CDC. The data come from the National Survey of Children’s Health, a nationally representative phone survey of households with children. This survey is conducted every four years.
    Main findings of the report:
    • The prevalence of parent-reported ASD among children aged 6-17 years was 2 percent [1 in 50] in 2011-2012 compared to 1.2 percent [1 in 83] in 2007.
    • The change in prevalence estimates was greatest for boys and for adolescents aged 14 to 17 years.
    • Children who were first diagnosed in or after 2008 were more likely to have milder ASD than those diagnosed in or before 2007.
    • Much of the increase in the prevalence estimates from 2007 to 2011-2012 for school-aged children was the result of diagnoses of children with previously unrecognized ASD.
    The report is available at”

    The second bullet point is especially telling and may indicate that, under today’s vaccination schedule, the development of sufficient symptoms for an “autism” diagnosis may be taking longer than it did in the mid-2000s.

    Hopefully, some of the preceding information will stop people from focusing on the MMR vaccine because, based on the significantly lower “autism” rate from the data reported in a 2010 study looking at autism and jaundice (1 in 1272), it would seem that the MMMR vaccine in a Danish vaccination program that recommends a much lower number of vaccines and requires them to be free of Thimerosal (one trade name for an organic mercury compound, sodium ethylmercurithiosalicylate, that is 49.55% mercury by weight), is a direct causal factor in “5%” of the 1 in 50 cases in the USA.

    Finally, while autism is a serious chronic childhood medical condition, the focus should be on all the epidemics of chronic childhood medical conditions that, in the 2006 NHANES report, reported that 50% of all children had at least one chronic medical condition and predicted that more than 25% of the USA’s children would have at least one lifetime chronic medical condition, which include, but are not limited to, “autism”, ADHD, asthma/COPD, diabetes, dilated idiopathic cardiomyopathy, encephalitis and encephalopathy, epilepsy, gastrointestinal diseases and disorders, Guillian Barré syndrome, multiple sclerosis, chronic skin conditions, obesity, and vasculitis.

  4. Dr. Andrew J. Wakefield has a good discussion on the history of the association of the live viruses known to cause brain inflammation with autism spectrum disorders in his book, “Callous Disregard, Autism and Vaccines – the Truth Behind a Tragedy,” Ch. 9, “The Devil’s in the Details.” I was just reading it yesterday.

  5. Apparently Bill hasn’t been paying attention lately and puts forth that measles can be deadly but not so with autism. There have been hundreds of deaths of autistic children across the U.S. in the last decade. Deaths from seizures, wandering and drowning or being struck by vehicles, or the worst of all…..the victims of homocide by caretakers tipped over the edge of sanity by the overwhelming crisis of autism in their family. All a direct result of their autism, all would not have happened had they not been autistic. So the trade-off is not life vs autism at all.

  6. Let’s see if we go by the number 1 in 40,000 deaths from measles what do we get. One very tragic and unfortunate death, never a good thing. But we get 39,999 children with lifelong immunity to measles.
    The girls among them now can pass on immunity to their newborn through the placenta and breast milk, therefore reducing the new and previously unknown risk of “infants” being at risk of these diseases when they are most dangerous. Or let’s vaccinate the same 40,000 and what do we get. 800 Children with Autism, another 800 with asthma, 600 with life-threatening peanut allergies (because peanut oil is used in vaccines because it is cheaper than other oils and is caught up in the inflammatory response that is designed to happen), 1200 children with a developmental disorder of some kind, 8 children will be diagnosed with a childhood cancer (another rapidly increasing problem no one seems to be able to explain), a significant number with Crohn’s disease, colitis, Celiac, and other gastrointestinal disorders that have tripled in the last two decades and of course the significant statistic that I.Q.s have dropped an average of 10 points in the last 20 years.
    Those 800 children with Autism…..on average 744 of them will never live independently, go to college, join the military, or hold down regular jobs. They will require care 24/7 for the rest of their lives. Measles is short lived and conveys immunity for life. Autism is just for life. When talking trade-offs or comparing benefits vs. risks there are many factors that can be evaluated, mortality, morality, quality of life, quantity of life, short term inconvenience, long term outcomes, economic impacts, and more. If you compare measles to autism, well there just is no comparison, autism is 1,000 fold more devastating to human life than measles ever was or could be. People like Bill assume that vaccines are protecting the health of our children while it becomes more apparent that it is destroying health. While they may not have the measles, we have the sickest generation of children in the history of the world and many of these immune system disorders are tripling in a very short time and they last for a lifetime, heavily impacting not just the quality of life but quantity as well, since diabetes and other diseases will significantly shorten life. In fact many experts believe we are seeing the first generation of American children that will not outlive the life expectancy of their parents. A very sad state of affairs. If you are going to promote vaccination as the savior of our children’s health then you better be able to show me children that actually have health or healthy outcomes and we are certainly not seeing that. And we haven’t even touched the economic impact of generations of chronically ill and disabled children that at 21 will be signing up in record numbers for Medicare and Social Security without ever having put into the system. We are headed for a tsunami like disaster of epic proportions. Bill might want to rethink whether nursing your kid through a short bout of the measles might not be preferable to a lifetime of misery and despair.

  7. Bill argues that autism is a worthwhile outcome of the measles vaccine and preferable to dying from the measles.

    He might argue he does not say this?

    But measles for the English has long been recognised as mild and good for our developing immune system.

    Personally it would be good to have a measles vaccine that is safe and stops us getting this dangerous illness.

    The issue is complex and here is one article that sparked my interest many many years ago so is dated but has lots and lots and lots of good sense that has stood the test of time.

    Click to access MMR_VaccineTHROWER.pdf

    Problems from vaccines have been known ever since the first ones 200 years ago and before MMR comes DTP and before DTP comes Hep B. Hence the risks accumulate as we get more and more vaccines.

    My first vaccine was at 5 to 6 YEARS of age and not the one DAY current in many countries.

    Hence to me turning a valuable health benefit into a lottery for the next born children and their health.

  10. Hello ChildHealthSafety,

    Although I do agree that we still do not know what causes autism, I disagree with your conclusion that all studies claiming that MMR is unrelated to the development of autism are invalid.

    Would you mind reading my blog at http:// dev. isucomm. iastate. edu/thegreenroom/derekaj/2013/12/02/does-vaccination-your-child-increase-their-chance-of-developing-autism/? I would like to have your perspective.

    Derek A. Johnson
    The Green Room at Iowa State University

    [ED: The poster is apparently a freshman in engineering who is suddenly an expert on autism with the first trimester barely over.

    Wonderful what you can achieve with the University of Google.]

  11. I don’t mean to be confrontational, but I never claimed to be an expert. I do, however, have research articles at my disposal that others may not have access to due to my enrollment at a university of science and technology. I also feel it is important to mention that I have loved ones who are affected by Autism. So, although my course of study is engineering, my interest in researching the subject comes from a personal interest not a professional one.

    I am still interested in hearing your perspective of my research regardless of my level of education. I am also curious what your educational background is so that I can further understand your perspective.

    Thank you

    [ED: This guy looks like a “wack-job”. His “research” eventually amounted to a short blog post culled from online blogs which ignored things like this:

    All Studies Claiming No MMR Vaccine-Autism Link Invalid – According to Merck’s Vaccine Director, former US CDC Director & the US HRSA

    Instead of considering the evidence and providing balanced research this nut did a cherry-picking skim of the web and then wrote this:

    “The evidence that is there says that the MMR vaccine is not the cause of Autism. If you look at the facts, this is what you have: a medical researcher with a very strong conflict of interest and a handful of mothers and other medical professionals vs. countless medical doctors, researchers, and scientists with real facts and epidemiological statistics. If you can vaccinate, do it. There is no evidence to support the idea that MMR causes Autism. Because of this lack of evidence, there is simply no reason to put your child and the children around them at risk of these potentially deadly and debilitating diseases. The choice is clear.”

    What makes him look pretty stupid is his claim to having “research articles at my disposal that others may not have access to due to my enrollment at a university of science and technology“. Not only does he not realise there is a vast amount of online research and much written formally and published online, but he has not used any of these “research articles” to which he refers as being at his disposal [and not to others] but skimmed the blogs to write what is just-another-cherry-picking-denialist-blog-post. Good grief.]

  12. CDC admits to 10 year cover up of vaccines causing autism and the highest risk was in black boys …also Merck is forced to go to trial over MMR fraud

  13. Does anyone really think that the CDC would ever put out a valid study that would show a connection between vaccines and autism?! If they ever put out a study saying there was a connection, vaccine rates would plummet, and that is the last thing they want. Also, Big Pharma is in the back pocket of our government, and the CDC obviously is a governmental agency. They would NEVER put out a study that would hurt Big Pharma, or that would clog our court system. If you want a study done to prove or disprove something, it can be done. You can play around with stats and make your case. I have to laugh whenever I hear that the CDC denies a link. Our government is all about corruption…IRS, VA, and CDC.

    My son was completely fine, meeting all developmental milestones when he got his MMR at 15 months. This was in 2003, and I remember asking my doctor about the possible link to autism, as there was a lot of press at that time about a connection. He assured me everything would be fine. By the time he went for his 18 month shots, he was a completely different child, and I asked the doctor of these behaviors were full blown autism emerging. He tried to reassure me that it was normal toddler behavior, we went ahead with the shots, he just continued to regress. He received no more shots for twelve years, and we have been trying to build his immune system naturally. The state of Indiana has made it almost impossible to get a medical exemption for vaccines, and we decided after twelve years he could handle the few shots left that are required for him to attend school. He is receiving just one vaccine at a time, about once a month, until he is caught up. Last week he had the MCV vaccine and had no adverse reactions. I did ask the doctor to run titers on him for the MMR and the Varicella. He has no immunity for Varicella, but full immunity for MMR, twelve years after just one shot. Hid doctor told me that it would be rare for any child to have immunity with only one shot after two years, let alone twelve years, but agreed to order the test. Since he has full immunity, 12 years after having only one MMR, it makes me wonder if there was a higher than average concentration of live virus than needed, and somehow that virus, or maybe some other component of the vaccine led to autism. Definitely something to think about…
