As he knows: 1) Have no pharma bosses, receive no funding from pharma 2) Health outcomes of vaccinated vs unvaccinated individuals? MMR (NEJM): "risk of autistic disorder in vaccinated children, as compared with the unvaccinated group, was 0.92" 

There was no association between the age at the time of vaccination, the time since vaccination, or the date of vaccination and the development of autistic disorder.

This study provides strong evidence against the hypothesis that MMR vaccination causes autism.

I could do this all day, but I have a day job to develop the #vaccines that pharma won't make. Currently hoping to help develop a #vaccine for people at risk for the n-coronavirus and address a potential pandemic

FYI except my last comment about the day job those were all quotes from the NEJM published study of 537,303 children in the cohort (representing 2,129,864 person-years), so it was pretty well powered...
