I am a teacher who is certified in special education and PreK-3. I have a lot of experience and have studied Autisim in children quite a bit in during my career, in undergrad, and grad school. I have read and read about the MMR shot and the concerns with it and its connection to Autisum and am VERY reluctant to give my child the shot. I do know both sides, that the study was only done on 12 children, and the doctor was paid by the lawyers in a lawsuit, as well as the fact that it is disproved my many studies, too. I still can't help but wonder, worry, etc. about this. Is there anyone else out there with this concern? Is anyone else thinking about not giving the shot to thier child and/or as the study recommended, having them given seperate? If anyone has questions about this I am open to answer!
