A special US court has ruled against parents with autistic children, saying that vaccines are not to blame for their children’s neurological disorder. The parents were attempting to make a personal injury claim for damage to their children’s health which they believe was caused by the MMR Vaccine.
The judges in the cases said the evidence was overwhelmingly contrary to the parent’s claims ” and backed years of science that found no risk.
More than 5,000 claims were filed with the U.S. Court of Claims alleging that vaccines caused autism and other neurological problems in their children. To win, they had to show that it was more likely than not that the autism symptoms were directly related to the measles-mumps-rubella shots they received.
The court still has to rule on separate claims from other families that other vaccines played a role.
