About this work


A film aimed at parents to address concerns about the MMR vaccine scare generated by the media in 2001. Parents interview four health professionals and experts about the MMR vaccine and whether it has any link to autism. The experts all explain why the vaccine is safe, that it does not have a link to autism, and that the vaccine's benefits outweigh any side effects. Interviewed are the Public Health Laboratory's Head of Immunisation Dr Elizabeth Miller, the Royal Free Hospital's Head of Child Health Professor Brent Taylor, health visitor Kim Finnegan and the Department of Health's Head of Immunisation Dr David Salisbury.
