Hi all. I just acquired a new all time low opinion of a doc in our town this week. I have a 5 yr old guy with autism. We adopted him a couple years ago. We do foster care. Anyway he has a new sibling that is in our care right now. She's only a couple weeks old and had her first visit with her doc this week. I brought up the subject of immunizations and that I thought it may be a good idea to take a more conservative approach with this new little one on the immunization schedule in light of her higher risk for autism because of a sibling being diagnosed. This doc dismissed anything I had to say about it, refused to adjust the shot schedule, and basically treated me like an idiot who just was anti-immunizations. What are any of your thoughts out there on this. He kept insisting that any connection with immunizations and mercury was disproven, etc. Am I way off base on this? I'm just wanting to do anything we can to avoid any risk? By the way, they also have a 4 yr old sister whom we adopted with a genetic syndrome, and she also has a lot of autistic-like characteristics. What would you all do??? Kim

Sorry that I didn't reply sooner I was hoping someone else would.... I really don't want my name to be the only name on this board but.....here goes, I think you should follow your instincts and not let the doctor intimidate you. I believe their is a connection between autism and shots. I wish I'd been as strong as you when my little guy had shots. The tests they did to disprove the connection was poorly done so as far as that goes it's crap... Their is a website that can tell you exactly how much mercury is in the vaccinations that your child is receiving it's:
All you do is put in what your child weighs, what shots your child is receiving and what company they were made by and the mercury calculator will tell you exactly how much Mercury over the recommended dose is being given to the child, like theirs a recommended dose of mercury for anyone?. Anyway, you can ask your doctor to order from the companies that do not use mercury in their vaccinations, and their are companies that don't use it. It only takes the doctors office two weeks or so to get these in.. If your pediatrician gives you a hard time then go elsewhere. I went to three peds before finding the one that I like. I wish I knew all of this way back when.... Hope it helps you. Good Luck.

Hi, It's me again. I just went to that website I recommended and it's been completely changed, sorry. Feel free to check it out though and see what you think, I'd still want a new Pediatrician if I were you...

Vaccine Science: A Search for Truth February 2009 turned out to be a month when vaccine science was put on trial in the U.S. Court of Claims in Washington, D.C., in mainstream media and on the internet, in the British Medical Journal and in vaccine safety research initiatives by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Vaccine Risk Research Priorities Vaccination rates with multiple vaccines in America are at an all-time high and, with 1 in 6 vaccinated child in America now learning disabled; 1 in 9 suffering with asthma;1 in 150 developing autism, and 1 in 450 becoming diabetic, this is a legitimate question.
