Vaccine Didn't Cause Oregans Boy Autism

In a ruling by Special Master George Hastings on the 12 of this month in the special autism/vaccine court, ruled that thimerasol did not cause William Meads progressive autism. This is after an Oregon court ruled it did. The special U.S. court said that again there is insufficient data and the doctors involved showed gross misjudgement, read Andrew Wakefield, in blaming autism on vaccines, particularly thimerasol. This is after a similar ruling in Feb of 09. Another hit against the antivaxers, however, I don't think that will stop them. Nothing stops a religion or false beliefs, if only one believes hard enough. In a separate decision the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear about a case in Mass. of a case involving vaccine and seizures. So stay tuned.
