Autism and vaccinations

by Anna

As far as I can tell, the medical community is leaning towards saying there is no probable connection, while the parents of autistic kids are leaning towards saying there is a probably connection.


One opinion I keep hearing that concerns me is that is the idea that even if there is a possible link between autism and immunizations, that the benefits of immunizations are so great that the overall benefits to society is paramount.

To me, that implies that individual outcomes don't matter - whether there is a link between autism and vaccines or not.

Does that makes children with autism acceptable collateral damage?

As a parent of a child with Aspergers Syndrome, I'm not comfortable with the idea parents shouldn't be asking questions, just because there is such a great benefit to society for vaccinations.

But that's just me.
