Following the admission by #CDCwhistleblower Dr William Thompson, a senior Centers for Disease Control scientist, that the CDC published studies which hid data showing vaccines cause autism investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson reports here the recent concession by the CDC’s Immunization Safety Director, Dr Frank Destefano, of the “possibility” that vaccines trigger autism.

Destefano is associated with the scandal of the CDC commissioning research involving research fraudster Dr Poul Thorsen: CDC Frauds: Connections Between the DeStefano Paper and the Thorsen Affair.
The disclosures by #CDCwhistleblower Dr William Thompson were reported by CHS here: Breaking News – US Centers for Disease Control Lied in Denials of Research Fraud Cover-up That MMR Vaccine Causes Autism – CDC Long History of Lies and Research Fraud Revealed.
Attkisson now reports:
CDC’s immunization safety director says it’s a “possibility” that vaccines rarely trigger autism but “it’s hard to predict who those children might be.” (They’re not even trying.)
A CDC senior epidemiologist stepped forward last week to say that he and his CDC colleagues omitted data that linked MMR vaccine to autism in a 2004 study. The scientist, William Thompson, said “I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information.”
Dr. Frank DeStefano, CDC Director of Immunization Safety
A coauthor of the questioned study is Dr. Frank DeStefano, Director of the CDC Immunization Safety Office. In a telephone interview last week, DeStefano defended the study and reiterated the commonly accepted position that there’s no “causal” link between vaccines and autism.
But he acknowledged the prospect that vaccines might rarely trigger autism.
“I guess, that, that is a possibility,” said DeStefano. “It’s hard to predict who those children might be, but certainly, individual cases can be studied to look at those possibilities.”
It is a significant admission from a leading health official at an agency that has worked for nearly 15 years to dispel the public of any notion of a tie between vaccines and autism. Vaccines are among the most heralded medical inventions of our time. Billions of people have been vaccinated worldwide, countless lives have been saved and debilitating injuries prevented. The possibility that vaccines may also partly be responsible for autism, in individual cases, is not something public health officials are typically eager to address.
