Unfortunately for anti vaxxers, this is an article from 2011. Since then many people stopped believing Wakefield and due to the more recent out breaks of measles, there has been a huge uptake in the MMR vaccine which proves that more and more parents just don't believe those scare tactics.

You don't think the attorneys who paid for Wakefield's investigation wasn't done for profit?! And, due to that alone it made whatever his fake findings were, biased. Wakefield's study was faked, which mkes it hypothetical. One thing about studies which you don't understand is they ALL have controls. Wakefield's did not.

Who cares what it was. Wakefield didn't do anything but fraud.

Anti vaxxers are the ones needing a tissue. Their leader is now unemployed and living off of anti vaxxers pity. And, to anti vaxxers dismay, tons are getting the MMR. Wakefield is a hasbeen, gone down in history as creating the biggest medical hoax ever. He even tops snake oil docs from the 1800's!!

Then why get so upset over it and resort to name-calling if it weren't true?? Your comment alone makes it true.
That said, MMR uptake in the UK alone is at it's highest in 14 years. I'd say that was a ton.

95 percent of the population is a tad bit more than just 2 or 3. Times are changing and anti vaxxers aren't even the minority any more. They now consist of 2 or 3 people of who no one listens to.

Between March 2013 and May 2013, 52,502 UK parents by choice (not forced) got the MMR vaccine. Anti vaxxers aren't even the minority any more. They now consist of 2 or 3 people that offer nothing but Gov conspiracy and denial of facts. The general public are now viewing anti vaxxers as a teeny tiny group of non social, scared, fearful people who cant even back up their claims.

BUH Wah Ha Ha you think 52,502 is 95 percent of the British population? Those are likely all newborns meaning one in 64 or worse will be autistic and many more ADHD. And people who are concerned with vaccine safety have gotten 2 congressional hearings and are VERY influential, including Wakefield and McCarthy who can fill auditoriums where ever they go. Its pro-vacs who deny VAERS, Vaccine compensation plans and vaccine courts. Who ignore vaccine ingredients toxicity, eyewittness accounts from parents, acknowledged vaccine death and serious side effects and government protectionism of an industry with a gruesome history of killing and maiming with faulty, untested and fraudulent products. But hey thanks for the DUH MOMENT. THURSDAY is friend's comicon day.

The Winnipeg dummy is yet again showing his inability to read and comprehend. Friend did not say that 52,502 represented 95% of the British population. She said that 52,502 parents chose to get their kids MMR vaccinated between March and May this year. Is that too difficult for the Winnipeg dummy to understand? Are numbers like 52,502 too big for his tiny brain to cope with?

Current UK estimates for ASD rates are about 1 in 100, with no differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated. So given the choice between:-
Having the kids vaccinated (with a minuscule risk of serious side effects), but with a 1 in a 100 chance of them getting autism, but avoiding getting measles, mumps or rubella, with their possible serious complications.
or:-
Not having their kids vaccinated, with a 1 in a 100 chance of them getting autism, but also a real risk of the getting measles, mumps or rubella, with their much higher risk of possible serious complications.

Which would any sensible parent choose?
Only a mentally defective, or abusive parent would choose not to vaccinate, given the facts.

Another Thursday Funnies.
50,000 is not the population of the UK, however it brought the use of the MMR up to 95 percent. Parents choose to vaccinate their children. No one forced them. The record high in the up take in 14 years shows Wakefield's fraud and fear is over, making him more a has-been than ever before.
Those congressional meetings weren't all that effective except for the one which is looking into environmental causes, not vaccines.
You're dreaming to think Wakefield or McCarthy can fill any auditorium. Wakefield was reduced to public parks and couldn't even pay or fill a the park. Anti vaxxers paid for the park! McCarthy has been very quite in the anti vaccine scene, but she was only in it for the money. No one believes her son has 'recovered' from autism, or that he ever had autism.
No one ignores or denies VAERS, it's anti vaxxers as yourself who abuse and misuse the info to scare others. Try reading the sites disclaimers. "It's a passive reporting system. Anyone can submit a report, and multiple times under different names. Events in VAERS data does not infer causality. A report to VAERS does not prove that the identified vaccine(s) caused the adverse event described. It only confirms that the reported event occurred sometime after vaccine was given. No proof that the event was caused by the vaccine is required in order for VAERS to accept the report. VAERS accepts all reports without judging whether the event was caused by the vaccine."
No one denies vaccine side effects, except for anti vaxxers who deny ever knowing there was side effects, ever. Those side effects are but the same as if one was to contract the disease the vaccine was meant to prevent.
No vaccine comp court has awarded anyone for vaccine causing autism. No vaccine has been linked to causing autism.
The scare tactic of "an industry with a gruesome history of killing and maiming with faulty, untested and fraudulent products" is more evidence of scared fearful teeny tiny group of people spouting Gov conspiracy and denial of facts and offer no evidence nor have evidence to back the claims. And the person who makes that claim is the very same person who choose to vaccinate their child. It's easy to see why those types of people believe in Wakefield!

Britains rate is 1 in 64 or worse since the numbers will be from 10 years ago. And a senseable parent wouldn't take advice from a 13 year old

Britain's rate of what is 1:64? Autism? Monday Funny that you'd point that out, since Britain over the last 14 years have had the lowest vaccine rates of any country, and that was on the advice of Wakefield! Huh, I guess Wakefield was good for something! Thanks to him, that country showed vaccines are not the cause of autism rates rising.

a buffoon like you should take your own advice as poor as it is. friend said 95% then offered up 52,000 or so to back it up. See ricky boy that's adults talking and I guess a child like you isn't able to understand.

Can hardly believe what I am reading! An anti vaxxer is admitting I just backed up what I stated! Anyone can look up those figures anyway however, right it down! Winnipeg admitted I backed up what I stated! He debunked himself, yet again!

And it all depends on where you look. The autism rates in the UK are all over the place.

And in no way does Winnipeg behave like an adult, nor does he back up what he claims. Proof of this is the 32 posts of Winnipeg's that have been deleted.

Thanks for providing yet another great example of evidence that you don't behave like an adult nor could you be an adult.

The Winnipeg dummy's comprehension of numbers is so retarded that he can't understand that 52,502 parents having their kids vaccinated between March and May this year brings the number vaccinated up to 95%, which is what friend is saying. Only a total moron (such as the Winnipeg dummy) would interpret that as meaning that 52,502 represented 95% of the British population. Are Winnipeg schools that bad, or was the Winnipeg dummy the class dunce?
