Does anyone have some useful links to information on MMR.
I'd just like to become more infored but just don't feel I have the time to trawl over the internet.
My DD1 had the jab and my DD2 is about to have it.
I've heard some really conflicting information recently....the guy who started Austism link has been struck off...he hasn't...its all the drug companies.....Like I say I just want to be a bit more informed.

Also interested finding out about the following on MMR jab (boaster), which i'm told is the full jab again and may not nessecerrily be needed?

So any links to sites of interest would be most welcome.

Sorry can't really help, Wikipedia might have some useful advice.

I went with the MMR as the side effects from the actual diseases, measles, mumps and rubella... blindness, deafness and so on were more scary for me than the thought that a jab most children were given meant that most kids with autism had had the MMR. But NOT every child having had the MMR is diagnosed with autism.

It is scary when you are responsible for the health and welfare of these little people.

Good luck

I wouldn't use Wiki - it's not a really reliable source of information.

Hi Kettle, there's a whole section on vax now where you can post..also might find some old threads? It's been debated pretty roundly.

Also, you may like to know that there's no compensation for vaccine damage under the age of two. If a serious adverse event happens, no one is going to say thanks for doing your social duty -- it will be denied, even if happens the same day.

Dr Andrew Wakefield, MB BS FRCS FRCPath is currently up before the General Medical Council, but the complaint wasn't made by any of the parents in the original study. His original research wasn't discredited.
