It's vexing that we need yet another study to debunk the myth that vaccinations cause autism in children. But here we are again, 20 years after UK doctor Andrew Wakefield made that unsubstantiated claim and set off a wave of anti-vaxers that persists today.
Researchers at Copenhagen's Statens Serum Institute were the latest to refute the claims in study results released last week that looked at more than half a million children and found no inkling of a link to developmental disorders.
The anti-vaxers have been far from quiet as the debate over vaccines has erupted once again. They go as far as calling the Centers for Disease Control a fraud. We need to drown out their voices.
