Fascinating (and rather disturbing) piece over at Bad Science about the MMR scare; he unflinchingly places the blame for the whole MMR/Autism thing at the feet of journalists and the Blairs.
After her MMR booster number one daughter showed some symptoms of Measles. This is not uncommon. What freaked me out was the reaction of health professionals who simply assumed that we had not had her immunised and that she actually had measles. Seeing that take up of the vaccine has dropped to 73% makes their reactions make sense. Eyes rolling, sighing, and a general air of “you twat” must be the only way they can deal with it, I guess.
