1 year old had MMR Vaccine 11 days ago, little dot rash over body and a large pea sized lump at nape of neck hairline can't see doctor for a week?
Common finding: This is a common finding in many kids who receive the MMR. It is a sign the weakened virus in the vaccine did its job well and the kid had a minor rash in response. The real thing would have been 20X worse. The lump is a reactive lymph node and will reduce in size within 2-3 wks. You might call the office to have the experience recorded in the chart, but I wouldn't worry about going in. ...Read more
Fraudulent research: Wakefield, a british GI doc published a report in a british journal in 1998 proposing such a theory. His research could not be replicated & was later proven to involve fraud. He has been stripped of his medical license & the journal published a retraction. It has led to the deaths of hundreds of children when their frightened parents turned away from vaccines. Shame on him & those who spread this lie. ...Read more

Can the rubella vaccine cause autism? I’ve heard stories about the MMR vaccine, which includes rubella, can cause autism or other problems. Is there any evidence that this could be true?
In 1998, a doctor by the name of andrew wakefield published a study in the lancet journal implicating a relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Wakefield's study was found to be fraudulent, the data was manipulated and the study was retracted by the lancet in 2004. Dr. Wakefield even had his medical license revoked for unethical practices.
After this study was published in 1998, it spurred tons of research looking in to whether the relationship between vaccines and autism could be true. There have been well over 100 large-scale studies and evidence reviews looking at the relationship between vaccines and autism and every single one of those studies has shown that vaccines (including the mmr) do not cause autism.
Below, I've linked to 3 websites that discuss this controversy and the research involved in-depth. I will also add that I vaccinated my own child on the schedule recommended by the center for disease control and american academy of pediatrics without any hesitation. ...Read more

They hurt: That's about all I can think of. Vaccine development and use has been so successful over the past 4 decades that most never consider the small coffins they prevented from use.
