Why they are important for your baby

In what seems like a celebrity-driven mission to discourage you from having your child vaccinated, myths and rumors start flying. It's easy for the truth to get mixed in with fiction and for parents to truly be uncertain as to whether or not shots are dangerous for their children. 
The most common misconception about childhood vaccinations is that they cause autism. This is due to Andrew Wakefield, a former physician who published a study stating that the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine caused autism in children. This has been widely proven false. 
Since Wakefield's studies were published in 1998, other researchers in the medical field have been unable to present the same findings that Wakefield did. Since then, Wakefield had his medical license revoked. As a result, a constant struggle for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prove that vaccinations pose no threat to children has ensued. 
When the paper was written, approximately 90 percent of children in England were given the MMR vaccine. Oftentimes, what many people don't know is that this shot is administered around the same time that symptoms of autism begin to appear in children. As a result, it's common that children who are diagnosed with the condition have recently been vaccinated for MMR. In his study, Wakefield failed to determine if the occurrences of autism were prevalent in both vaccinated and unvaccinated children. 
Wakefield also claimed that autism is related to gastrointestinal inflammation. This is not true because gastrointestinal symptoms are seen after symptoms of autism appear. 
Wakefield failed to determine whether or not the virus genome was a natural or vaccine virus. This conclusion was crucial because the natural measles virus is still circulating throughout Europe. 
The testing that Wakefield used in his second 2002 study is well known for providing false positive results. However, Wakefield did not mention in his paper how the problem of false positives was avoided. 
Since Wakefield's first study caused a public uproar, there have been several published papers proving no connection between vaccines and autism. These include two papers written by Dr. Brent Taylor, a 2001 study by Dr. Nathalie Smith published in the Journal of the American Medical Association and a study published in the British Medical Journal
