Do vaccines cause autism? Many parents think so – and the story is very familiar to many of us. Parents often report their child regressing into an “autistic-like state” shortly after being vaccinated. This term has become broadly known as Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Health organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration staunchly deny any possible link to vaccines. However, they may want to pay attention to a recent and important court ruling.
According to a document filed on December 13, 2012, Chief Special Master Patricia E. Campbell-Smith awarded Ryan B. Mojabi $969,474.91 for injuries caused by the MMR vaccine.  You should also know the money awarded comes from a vaccine tax and not from taking the vaccine manufacturers to court.
Page two of the filing declares Ryan suffered, “a severe and debilitating injury to his brain, described as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).” It continues, he “suffered a Vaccine Table Injury, namely, an encephalopathy as a result of his receipt of the MMR vaccination on December 19, 2003.”  (emphasis mine)
