Autism Vaccine Case Concession
Lots of buzz in the medical world following the press conference on CNN yesterday where the parents of Miss Hannah Poling (Dad is an MD PhD neurologist, Mom is a nurse and attorney) discussed their daughter's immersion into autism following her 18 month shots. She received nine in one day, as part of a "catch up" schedule. Last night on Larry King, Sangay Gupta suggested that we should break up the vaccination schedule. That was a shocker. Remember, children today receive dozens of vaccinations before age 2 with the full blessing of the AAP and CDC. In fact, the AAP representative on Larry King (Harvey Karp, SUCH an unfortunate name!) said, the vaccines are bundled for convenience. Really? Convenient. Don't get me started.
You can read much more if you're so inclined at Age of Autism. There you'll find a link to the press conference, the CDC response (Autism = sad.) and more.
