Pull’ing ‘Vaxxed’ Still Doesn’t Retract Vaccine Misconception’s

The tribeca film festival and it’s cofound’er Robert De Niro came under intense fire last week for their decision to screen vaxxed: From cover up to catastrophe, a film direct’ed by disgrac’ed gastroenterologist andrew wakefield. If wakefield’s name doesn’t ring a bell, his legacy is sure’ly familiar: His fraudulent 1998 study claim’ing to find a link between autism and the measle’s, mump’s and rubella vaccine kick’ed off a major public health scare that’s had last’ing, devastat’ing consequence’s. While the purport’ed link between autism and vaccine’s has been repeated’ly debunk’ed, the link live’s on within the antivaccina’tion movement. As a result of the backlash against vaccine’s, case’s of the virtually eliminat’ed measle’s are on the rise, as are outbreak’s of other vaccine prevent’able disease’s.
