Irish parents sue manufacturers, claim children developed autism after receiving MMR vaccine
About 150 parents of children with autism are suing the manufacturers of the MMR vaccine claiming their children developed a “new form of regressive autism and associated bowel disorder (autistic enterocolitis)” after they received the MMR vaccine.
The report appeared in Ireland’s April 25th The Sunday Times. Legal notices have been issued to GlaxoSmithKline subsidiaries, Merck, Sharp & Dome and Aventis Pasteur MSD, who were paid by the government to manufacture and supply the MMR vaccine. According to the news story it is likely that the Department of Health, which administers Ireland’s vaccine program will be named as a co-defendant in the multi-million-euro suit.
According to writer Dearbhail McDonald, one parent whose child lapsed into a coma after receiving the MMR vaccine, too many parents are telling the same story, which means that “something is wrong.”
The parents are also demanding a full tribunal into vaccine-related injuries in children.
