Blume is living proof that the antidote to misinformation about vaccines is science. "I was relieved," she said, "because I didn't hurt him. His autism wasn't my fault."
are largely a result of parents being afraid to vaccinate their children against the virus. The number one concern? Autism.

Navigating Autism Services & Insurance Coverage - A Free Seminar
Date And Time
Autism Learning Partners
3190 Northeast Expressway NE
Chamblee, GA 30341
About this Event
We’ll talk about best practices, discuss available treatment options, and have a Q & A session for all participants.
This seminar is designed for families with newly diagnosed children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Birth to Five Early Intervention Providers. Within the last decade, there has been a rise in children diagnosed with ASD (1 out of 59 children).
With the incline of ASD diagnoses, there is an urgent need for parents and early intervention community providers to understand resources available and the importance of accessing services for newly diagnosed families. Starting early intervention services during the early years of development is crucial in order to support a child’s progress and prepare them for a successful trajectory. Because the early years of a child’s life are critical in brain development, it is vital for parents and providers to understand the available evidenced based practices, such as Applied Behavior Analysis, the appropriate service options and treatment settings available.

Study of 657,461 children finds no link between vaccines and autism
Danish researchers followed children born over a 10-year period and found no connection between autism and the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine.
This clip from the Today Show after Robert DeNiro pulled a movie from the Tribeca Film Festival supporting the DISPROVEN CLAIM of a relationship between Autism and Childhood Vaccines is interesting, but does not go far enough to reassure parents about the safety of childhood vaccines and the overwhelming evidence of NO RELATIONSHIP to vaccines as a cause of Autism.
Although Autism is real, many studies have FAILED to identify a relationship to vaccines or to thimersal, a preservative which is now removed from almost all childhood vaccines. In this video clip, one hears about the same frequency of Autism in children who receive vaccines accoding to the recommended effective vaccine schedule AND children who receive vaccines in a staggered and drawn out administration schedule. But the clip does NOT make the point, that children remain UNPROTECTED from childhood diseases when given immunizations in a delayed or deferred immunization schedule.
Clearly parents of Autistic children are looking for the cause of their children's different development, as well they should. So is Medical Science. We are fortunate in Atlanta to have one of the facilites funded to continue this improtant research_The Marcus Autism Center.
The makers of the movie pulled by DeNiro present a theory of cause for Autism that was reported based on falsified research data. The original published article was retracted years later. The author of the original biased discredited article was rebuked by the scientific community and lost his medical license in Great Britain. Much research has been done since the original article by different authors, published in different journals, reviewed by many different scientist and all show NO RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VACCINES & AUTISM. Yet the public remains fearful of vaccines and a growing number of children are inadequaletly immunized putting all children and the community in general at risk of preventable diseases.
Bottom line: if parents are concerned about the safety and efficacy of vaccines, please discuss your concerns with your doctors and don't forget to discuss as well the diseases that vaccines are designed to prevent.
