that report (the one the mirror based the article on) also concluded that "The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate."

I really think the media have been criminally responsible for misleading parents in this issue. There really is no evidence that MMR and autism are linked and the incidence of illness and disablement from measles, mumps and rubella hasn't been reported.

We all worry about our children and the media have shamefully exploited this. The bottom line is a claim the government has had a policy of poisoning our children deliberately. Do we really believe that?

Possibly, if they've decided it's a choice between protecting the vast majority of children from infectious diseases, and protecting a comparative handful of children from vaccine damage. Cynical, moi?

most media stories have been pro MMR.

I think pixel is right. Read {link<a class="break-all" href="\this" rel="nofollow noindex" target="_blank">\this thread} to see what happens when the MMR disagrees with your child.

try again

agree with bakabat that most media coverage very pro MMR. They don't really seem to be looking for evidence, just spoon fed what they are given from obvious sources.

I've just decided to have the single jabs private for ds2. Though ds1 has had mmr and is fine I've been getting one of these mummy instincts that says it's not right for ds2.....

the jabs website emails you a list of clinics who give the singles if anyone is interested.
