Cogent points. I should point out that I’m not anti-vax. I AM common sense vax. Diptheria – good vaccine. Polio – good vaccine. Flu vaccine for children – why? Varicella vaccine – why? My mother asked me not to vaccinate my children with MMR until they were ready for school. I did as she asked. She said there was suspicion that it could cause autism especially in boys. So there was suspicion even in the 80’s. I wasn’t able to download the study done by Dr. Hooker but I DID copy and paste the entire text including tables and references into a Word document.
