    Do you trust the vaccines you are given?

    Antivaxxer movement leader found to have acted unethically

    Continuing a month of skeptical victories, the UKís General Medical Council has found that Andrew Wakefield ó the founder of the modern antivaccination movement ó acted "dishonestly and irresponsibly" when doing the research that led him to conclude that vaccinations were linked with autism. This is being reported everywhere, including the BBC, Sky News, the Yorkshire Evening Post, and more.

    The GMC(the independent body of medical regulators in the UK, rather like the AMA in the US) didnít investigate whether his claims were correct or not ó and letís be very clear, his claims have been shown beyond any doubt to be totally wrong ó only whether he acted ethically in his research. What they found is that his research (involving spinal taps of children) was against the childrenís clinical interest, that Wakefield was unqualified to perform the test, and that he had no ethical approval to do them.

    Wow. Again, letís be clear: thatís a whole lot of ethical damnation from the UKís leading medical board.

    Not to pile on here, but I was rather surprised that they didnít mention the claims ó supported by a lot of evidence ó that on top of all that unethical behavior, he may have faked his results, too. Thereís also no mention of his grave conflict of interestĖ at the time he published his paper slamming vaccines and which started the antivax craze, he was developing an alternative to vaccinations, so he had a very large monetary incentive to make the public distrust vaccines.

    They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

    Though what Andrew Wakefield did is absolutely appalling.

    When they start injecting people with drain cleaner, then I'll become worried.

    I'm old enough to remember some of the diseases for which there are now vaccinations. Although there is a risk with some vaccinations, as there is with all medicines, the benefits well out weigh the risk.

    I have been vaccinated against polio, Hep A and B, tetanus, and take a flu shot annually. I work among high risk. At my next tetanus booster, I will replace it with Tdap to immunize me against tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis. These diseases are raising their heads.

    The last injection I had was a tetanus shot some 10 years or so ago.
