This is something you don't hear mentioned much by people, like me, who are against the vaccine schedule.

They are in many of the group homes I work at. They were in residences but Ontario has closed all those.
Iran does vaccinate their children.
The polio vaccine is required for the pilgrimage to Mecca, the hajj.
It is interesting now that everyone at NASA is being diagnosed post hoc as "an aspie". Who does this "Monday Morning diagnosing"?
Ten years ago, an article appeared that said that all Americans were ADHD types. That was the cultural cocktail hour discussion. The idea was that our ancestors were restless, wanting adventure so they set their sights on the New World.
Does everyone at NASA have explosive diarrhea and intestinal distress also? Do they scream, bang their heads on the wall, walk on their toes, and flap their arms? Would a DAN! practitioner be on the payroll or would it be part of their healthcare package?
My uncle lives in one of these group homes. He's nearly 66 and has Autism. He was in an institution from the late 1950's until sometime in the 70s. There is an invisible generation of people with Autism - my grandparents didn't get any support in having him stay at home. My grandmother was blamed for causing his Autism. They created their own community supports but ultimately placed him in an institution in an effort to protect their other children. By placing him, they were doing what society had been pressuring them to do for the previous 12 years. He wouldn't have been integrated into school or attending day camp with his sisters. Disabilities were to be hidden.
Incidentally, even before it was a popular sentiment, my grandmother felt that there was a correlation between his vaccinations and the onset of the symptoms. Personally I think there's a lot more to it, and that is not my primary reason for not vaccinating my children.
