On January 5th, 2011 the British Medical Journal published the article “How the case against the MMR vaccine was fixed” by journalist Brian Deer–spurring controversy surrounding the research methods used in a 1998 study published in the Lancet by Dr. Andrew Wakefield et al. The study, which suggested a link between Autism and the MMR vaccine, and was later retracted by the Lancet.
The Boulder Vaccine Safety Coalition has compiled several media resources where Wakefield and others defend his research and gives important information for understanding this controversy. You can view them here.
