Thanks to Donna Provencher for her excellent piece on vaccinations and Andrew Wakefield’s part in fomenting fear with his sketchy “studies” purporting to show that vaccines cause autism. 

I would also note that Wakefield was stripped of his medical license by the U.K. authorities, resulting in denial of his application for a Texas medical license. We can thank those regulatory authorities for preventing him from continuing to practice medicine.
