Letter: Opposition to immunization
Regarding your article on the mumps cases at the Aspen schools (“Pitkin County confirms three mumps cases,” The Aspen Times, May 13), the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine is the most dangerous of all vaccines. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, trying to prove Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s data were bogus in their relation to causing autism in boys, found out Wakefield was actually correct and fudged the numbers, according to a prominent CDC employee, Dr. William Thompson. Thompson, who was head of these new CDC studies, testified data were tossed as they showed autism, especially in African-American male boys, was caused by the vaccine. Get your facts straight before putting articles with misinformation on the front page of The Aspen Times. The measles, mumps and rubella vaccine is the most dangerous of all vaccines, and dealing with measles, mumps, chickenpox, etc., is not a life-threatening ordeal unless you are living in a place where you suffer from malnutrition. The damage the vaccine can do to young children is much worse than a case of measles or mumps, and the CDC hiding this info proves my case.
