The 'safe' MMR
'Safe' vaccine lie

[Wouldn't want to forget the lies or ignorance of all these Experts.  This has moved on to The Wakefield Greek Chorus.]

The two of the three vaccine brands that were introduced in 1988 had to be withdrawn for safety reasons and yet Dr Salisbury in his statement to the GMC sums up by saying this is a vaccine with an exemplary safety record.  Well, if that is his idea of an excellent safety record then we have a very different perception he and I of vaccine safety.

"I am hugely grateful to Vivienne Parry, a member of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, which advises the Government on the controversial MMR injection, for finally explaining the true attitude of the authorities: 'There's a small risk with all vaccines,' she says. 'No one has ever said that any vaccine is completely without side-effects." --Hitchens July 2007

“I am convinced of the safety and effectiveness of immunising with MMR”----The facts about MMR and your child. A letter from the Chief Medical Officer. 2001.'s paediatrician Dr Ilona Bendefy: Dr Bendefy wholeheartedly recommends the MMR jab and does not believe that it causes autism or Crohn's disease. 'There's so much conflicting evidence that I can understand why parents are concerned and confused,' she says. 'But I wholeheartedly recommend that parents should let their children have the vaccine. (May 2003)'s GP Rosemary Leonard: Both Dr Leonard's children have been immunised with the MMR vaccine and she strongly recommends other parents allow their children to have the jab. She has already had two cases of measles in her surgery this year, the first time she has seen the disease in Britain for many years. (may 2003)

February 2006 MMR is an extremely safe vaccine and has been used worldwide for nearly 30 years. Over 500 million doses have been used in over 90 countries. The MMR vaccine was introduced in the UK in 1988.  February 2006 The BMA:

"The conclusion time and time again is that the (MMR) vaccine is safe."  Dr Elizabeth Miller Public Health Laboratory Service, 22 January, 2001

"This (MMR)  is a safe vaccine."-------Dr David Salisbury, Government immunisation programme

"Sooner or later they will have to accept the evidence MMR is safe."--Dr Andrew Dearden, BMA's GP Committee (Feb 15 2003, Western Daily Mail)

"But child psychiatrist Prof Christopher Gillberg yesterday told a national autism conference he had not seen a "shred of evidence" to link the measles, mumps and rubella vaccination to childhood autism."--Media Sept 2002

"The government ordered the Medical Research Council (MRC) to carry out the work after concerns were raised earlier this year. ....Thirty seven scientific experts gathered to review all the evidence and concluded there is no reason to change the current MMR vaccination policy for children. They said autism appeared at about the same age as most children received the vaccine, but that was almost certainly pure coincidence and not proof of a genuine link.   The Chief Medical Officer, Sir Kenneth Calman, said: "I strongly advise parents to continue to have their children immunised with the MMR vaccine." Media 1998

"More than 800 doctors have given their seal of approval to the controversial measles, mumps and rubella vaccine in a survey. The poll, carried out by medical research group Medix, revealed that 98% of those surveyed would be happy for their own child to be vaccinated with the combined MMR vaccine. "--Media

"The conclusion time and time again is that the (MMR) vaccine is safe."  Dr Elizabeth Miller Public Health Laboratory Service, 22 January, 2001

"The safety evidence [for the MMR vaccine] is so overwhelming that health professionals should have no hesitation in recommending the use of this vaccine."--Dr Miller

"Is the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine safe? Yes, acceptably so, is the only conclusion possible to reach in the face of the totality of the epidemiological evidence."--Lancet Editorial Feb 2002

"Dr. Neal Halsey, director of the Institute for Vaccine Safety at Johns Hopkins University, said scientists should try to determine whether measles viruses linger in the intestines or other tissues, but the outcome of such studies would not alter his opinion that MMR is safe and effective."--Media

"Because the measles vaccine has no serious permanent side effects, its benefits still clearly outweigh its risks.MMR: Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccine. Vaccine Education Center - Children's Hospital
