Autism Link with Vac­ci­na­tions Heats Up

Par­ents Doubt Vac­cine Safety” was the head­line of a story from the Octo­ber 30, 2000 USA Today. This story stems from a study spon­sored by the National Net­work for Immu­niza­tion Infor­ma­tion. For this study, a phone sur­vey of 1,600 expec­tant par­ents and par­ents of chil­dren age 6 and younger was con­ducted. The results of the study were released at the Amer­i­can Acad­emy of Pedi­atrics meet­ing in Chicago.

The results showed that 25% of par­ents are con­cerned that chil­drens immune sys­tems could be weak­ened by too many vac­cines, and nearly that many say that “chil­dren get more immu­niza­tions than are good for them.” Amaz­ingly, a full 14% of the par­ents say they would opt out of at least one vac­cine, if they were to have another child in the future.

Much of the pub­lic con­cern about this issue has been sparked by recent links between vac­cines and autism or other child­hood dis­eases. So strong is the evi­dence that Con­gres­sional hear­ings have been con­vened to focus on the issue.

Bar­bara Loe Fisher, of the National Vac­cine Infor­ma­tion cen­tre responded by say­ing, “The rapidly ris­ing num­ber of vac­cines required in recent years may be at least a fac­tor in caus­ing the huge increase in learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties and dis­eases such as autism and asthma.”

This sub­ject has been get­ting much needed press time lately. This included a Sun­day, Nov. 12th, 2000 CBS spe­cial seg­ment titled “MMR Vac­cine and Autism” on their highly acclaimed TV show 60 Minutes.
