‘…OK Paul, I started fact checking your June 12, 01:38 comment #54946, and didn’t get very far. You cited anti-vax site healthimpactnews.com as follows:
– “The federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has awarded Ryan Mojabi and his family a multi-million dollar settlement for autism as the result of an injury from the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine”
So I looked in the settlement document at drive.google.com, your third link, and healthimpactnews.com’s allegation is untrue….’
The Petitioners claimed under ‘encephalopathy’ as otherwise it would not have been accepted for jurisdiction; ‘encephalopathy’ is an accepted Vaccine Table Injury, and that is what they paid out under. But the encephalopathy caused the ‘Autism Syndrome Disorder’, which they had also claimed for. Technically, you are right, and the article should have been more careful in it’s wording, but basically the encephalopathy caused the ASD:
‘…In recent years, many studies indicate that children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis have brain pathology suggestive of ongoing neuroinflammation or encephalitis in different regions of their brains…’
‘…Petitioners alleged that as a result of “all the vaccinations administered to [Ryan] from March 25, 2003, through February 22, 2005, and more specifically, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccinations administered to him on December 19, 2003 and May 10, 2004,” Ryan suffered “a severe and debilitating injury to his brain, described as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).” Petition at 1. Petitioners specifically asserted that Ryan “suffered a Vaccine Table Injury, namely, an encephalopathy” as a result of his receipt of the MMR vaccination on December 19, 2003. Id. In the alternative, petitioners asserted that “as a cumulative result of his receipt of each and every vaccination between March 25, 2003 and February 22, 2005, Ryan has suffered . . . neuroimmunologically mediated dysfunctions in the form of asthma and ASD.” Id. at 1-2.
On June 9, 2011, respondent filed a supplemental report pursuant to Vaccine Rule 4(c) stating it was respondent’s view that Ryan suffered a Table injury under the Vaccine Act – namely, an encephalitis within five to fifteen days following receipt of the December 19, 2003 MMR vaccine, see 42 C.F.R. § 100.3(a)(III)(B), and that this case is appropriate for compensation under the terms of the Vaccine Program. See Resp’t Report, June 1, 2012, at 3-5. This filing followed: (1) the conduct of two fact hearings; (2) petitioners’ determined efforts to obtain medical records from Ryan’s emergent treatment in Tehran; and (3) the issuance of a fact ruling by the undersigned…’
ASD = Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The Vaccine Court avoids the ‘autism’ diagnosis like the plague, not because they are don’t know it can be caused by vaccines, but because of the immense cost of compensating all the victims.
