Autism & vaccination--parents
Vaccination quotes

"I am the father of a 9 year-old son whose descent into the world of autism began at the age of 7 months old after receiving numerous vaccinations in a single day; the same story that is told by thousands of other parents of children throughout the country whose healthy, normally developing children have become autistic after vaccinations."--Rick Rollens

"Regards to vaccines, I have had hundreds of parents and grandparents contact me about their autistic children developing normally and then going downhill into autism after vaccines. Some of these parents are in the medical profession with MD and RN designations. Many of these parents have gotten biopsies of the ileal and/or immune blood panel tests."--Raymond Gallup

"I have hundreds of new friends who know their child's autism is from vaccines. They as parents know their children better then anyone and watched their children slip into the autism world after a vaccine. And no not all of them were MMR vaccines. Some were DTP vaccines."--Danielle Sarkine

"I am just one parent among many who has a vaccine-damaged child.  It was only after my son lost his ability to speak and communicate after his final vaccination at 24 months and autistic behaviours emerged that I began to do my own research and discovered that what we have been led to believe is a Myth - namely, that vaccines are safe and effective."--Alex Snelgrove

"Our son developed normally meeting all major milestones but inexpicably regressed beginning at the age of 15 months following his MMR vaccination"-- Liz Birt and Maurice Lopez

"We have videos that prove that he was developing normally prior to this vaccine but we are told that medical evidence does not support a causal link between   immunisation and vaccination... However, I know there is... I do not need medical evidence to prove it!--Alex

" I am the parent of a child who became autistic after monovalent measles and MMR vaccinations." --David Thrower

"This time, I saw it: Connor at 11 months, smiling for the camera, looking into his daddy's eyes, touching his mommy's hair. Connor on his first birthday, after his morning visit to the doctor's office and MMR vaccination, no longer looking at anyone, no longer smiling. And perhaps the most revealing picture: Connor walking on his toes, one of the most common behaviors in autism. Within a day he had changed. ...(to the question--how many of you here believe your children have been damaged by vaccines?) seventy-five percent of the attendees stood up and raised their hands. One woman a few rows behind me was crying, and I knew intuitively that her faith in the medical establishment had finally crumbled.2---Lesli Mitchell

"Soon after my textbook on autism was published in 1964, I began to hear from other parents.  Many parents told me that their children were normal until getting a triple vaccine – the DPT shot.  In 1965 I began systematically collecting data on the symptoms and possible causes of autism:  In 1967—33 years ago—I began querying the parents, specifically about the child’s response to the DPT shot.  Many had reported marked deterioration."--Dr Rimland

"Liam was a normally developing baby until June 27, 1997, when he received his MMR and Hib vaccines."---Shelley Hendrix Reynolds

"The thousands of hours of research that we have spent searching and retracing his regression continue to point to the fact that the road to Jacob's autism began when his immune system was damaged by the Hepatitis B vaccine he received when he was ill. The final blow was the  adverse reaction to the host of vaccines he received by 16 months."---Jeana Smith

A mother asked me if he had received his MMR jab, because she’d heard there might be a link with autism. It was like someone had hit me,' says Rochelle. 'All the pieces fell into place. I cried."--Rochells Poulter

"What I now think is that autism is caused by a brain damage and up until the day she had her MMR-vaccination, she was a healthy normal little girl."--Anneslise Guldager Marthiesen

"We got talking to other parents at the school. In many cases, there seemed to be a regular pattern to the timing of the children's regression. We were discovering that things started to go wrong in the days and weeks after the vaccine, that the kids began behaving strangely, lost their words, became withdrawn. That their mental development stopped. We knew it had to be more than a coincidence.'' ---Bridget Enright
