Concerns about rubella vaccine

MMR vaccine link to autism hypothesised

F. Edward Yazbak, MD, ..... has studied cases where mothers were vaccinated with the MMR (for rubella) and with hepatitis B within five months prior to or during their pregnancies. Of the mothers in the study, 85 percent had children with autism. His studies also raised questions about the mercury-laden rhogam shot routinely given to Rh-negative mothers during pregnancy and the resulting higher incidences of autism in their children. (See also statements by Stephanie Cave, below, who said that the majority of mothers of autistic children in her practice are Rh negative.)
Because the diagnostic criteria for autism haven't changed since 1994, Yazbak believes that the increase in autism is real. He spoke of explosive increases in states like Ohio, which experienced a 6,822 percent increase within six years, and noted a 26 percent jump in diagnosed autism cases in the US just in the last year. "The thing that increased at the same time as the autism rates is vaccination," said Yazbak. "We now have the most vaccinated group of children ever. More importantly, the mothers of these children are also the most vaccinated mothers ever and have the most immune diseases ever in the history of the world."
    Yazbak believes that immune-challenged adult females do not necessarily develop protective antibodies after receiving live virus vaccine boosters. After revaccination due to the lack of antibodies, these mothers developed autoimmune disorders such as arthritis and thyroid conditions and had higher rates of miscarriages and stillbirths; in addition, their children had higher incidences of autism.
    In another study, Yazbak found that babies born to 20 of 25 women who had received an MMR vaccine postpartum developed autism. He pointed to CDC and vaccine manufacturers' recommendations on postpartum vaccination, which state that lactating postpartum women vaccinated with live attenuated rubella vaccine may secrete the virus in breastmilk and transmit it to breastfed infants and that "caution should be exercised when the vaccine is administered to a nursing mother."
Yazbak believes that all postpartum vaccination should cease immediately and that mothers who wish to breastfeed should avoid vaccinations. He also recommends that, when obtaining "informed consent," health providers should clearly explain to mothers that the rubella vaccine virus would be excreted in their nose, throat, and breastmilk. Serious research on whether measles vaccine virus is passed from mother to infant through breastmilk should be undertaken. To read Yazbak's paper, see "Autism: Is There a Vaccine Connection?
