Is Measles Vaccine Safe?

David Brownstein, M.D. By Tuesday, 17 February 2015 04:14 PM Current | Bio | Archive

I have written about the problems with the measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine in the past, including mention of research by Dr. Andrew Wakefield that found the measles virus in the lymph tissue of 12 autistic children.
Those children never developed measles, but they did get the measles vaccine. Dr. Wakefield thought that vaccines could be causing the gut inflammation that most autistic kids suffer. For that crime — criticizing a vaccine — he was vilified by the media and the medical profession.
Later, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) altered a 2004 study, hiding data that supported Dr. Wakefield’s research.
A whistleblower — who was an author on that 2004 paper — came forward last year to say that the paper was a fraud; the CDC hid data that showed a clear link between the early administration of the MMR vaccine and autism.
Furthermore, the MMR vaccine is known to cause shedding — a process by which the recipient excretes the measles virus in bodily fluids after it is administered.
Of course, it is unknown whether the latest outbreak of measles was due to a vaccinated patient shedding the virus, or if it came from a wild strain. Perhaps Dr. Wakefield’s research was fraudulent. (I have studied it and I don’t think it is.)
Until we know the truth from the CDC, parents can’t know for certain whether or not the MMR vaccine is safe to give their children.
I’ve had too many parents tell me that their children were healthy until receiving a vaccine — often the MMR vaccine. Later the children developed regressive autism.
In fact, a vaccine injury court was established to compensate people who have suffered adverse effects from vaccines.
If vaccines are safe, why do we need a court? Until these questions are answered, how can you fault a parent for questioning the safety of the MMR vaccine?
