Due to the necessity for more extreme cost cutting measures the following changes have now been made to the posting of the news:

1.    Medical journal articles will not normally be posted. However, a link to a journal’s Table of Contents will be posted when it comes out and can be accessed here or from the "Medical Journals" button on the left.

2.    Other than a few of what we consider to be the most important ones, blog articles will no longer be posted in “all the news”. Click here, however, for the complete list of blogs or on the button to the left.

3.    Autism and health articles that are not related to vaccination will no longer be regularly posted in the news.

4.    We will no longer be doing the calendar, vaccines in the pipeline or updating the Wakefield page.

5.    Follow me on Twitter for more "up to the minute" as well as health and autism news.

6.    We will no longer be checking for duplicate postings.

7.    If you wish to help us avoid further cut-backs, please consider donating to the site.

Vaccines are Key to Good Health - opinion

Considering vaccine as public responsibility

Comment:  On the other hand, Is the theory of 'herd immunity' flawed?

Comment: (From 2002 Bartlett Democratic Club speech) "Public Health will say that these vaccines must be mandatory or these diseases will spread.  But if the vaccines work, anyone choosing them will be protected.  If they don’t prevent the spread of the disease to the vaccinated, what is the point?  It hardly seems right that those who don’t want to be vaccinated should be required to be vaccinated, because vaccines don’t always work.

And to whatever extent vaccines are being required because the “immune suppressed” cannot be vaccinated, and are more vulnerable to the adverse effects of disease, while my heart goes out to such people, they are not more important than children who are harmed by vaccines.  Nor should the notion that vaccination may in itself be creating immune suppression be left out of this equation."

Comment:  Does anyone see the irony in the fact that it is the very failure of the vaccines that drives "mandating" them?
