“Statement of William W. Thompson, Ph.D., Regarding the 2004 Article Examining the Possibility of a Relationship Between MMR Vaccine and Autism” August 27, 2014

My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.
I want to be absolutely clear that I believe vaccines have saved and continue to save countless lives. I would never suggest that any parent avoid vaccinating children of any race. Vaccines prevent serious diseases, and the risks associated with their administration are vastly outweighed by their individual and societal benefits.
My concern has been the decision to omit relevant findings in a particular study for a particular sub group for a particular vaccine. There have always been recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with receipt of those vaccines.
I have had many discussions with Dr. Brian Hooker over the last 10 months regarding studies the CDC has carried out regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. I share his belief that CDC decision-making and analyses should be transparent. I was not, however, aware that he was recording any of our conversations, nor was I given any choice regarding whether my name would be made public or my voice would be put on the Internet.
I am grateful for the many supportive e-mails that I have received over the last several days.
I will not be answering further questions at this time. I am providing information to Congressman William Posey, and of course will continue to cooperate with Congress. I have also offered to assist with reanalysis of the study data or development of further studies. For the time being, however, I am focused on my job and my family.
Reasonable scientists can and do differ in their interpretation of information. I will do everything I can to assist any unbiased and objective scientists inside or outside the CDC to analyze data collected by the CDC or other public organizations for the purpose of understanding whether vaccines are associated with an increased risk of autism. There are still more questions than answers, and I appreciate that so many families are looking for answers from the scientific community.
My colleagues and supervisors at the CDC have been entirely professional since this matter became public. In fact, I received a performance-based award after this story came out. I have experienced no pressure or retaliation and certainly was not escorted from the building, as some have stated.

MMR Implicated in Rocketing Childhood Diabetes Rates
Government Risks Male Sterility As Mumps Vaccine Fails
Two new medical papers in Vaccine and Eurosurveillance respectively show this 10th April 2009 Daily Mail story – Students suffering as cases of mumps treble – is wrong about the reasons for adult mumps outbreaks.
The new medical papers show:-
* the mumps vaccine is failing – with vaccinated individuals catching mumps as adults
* but unvaccinated individuals are not
Mumps in adults but not children can cause an atrophied testicle and (rarely) male sterility. Mumps outbreaks in older individuals is a known effect of introducing vaccination. It pushes childhood diseases into the adult population. [A known concern with chickenpox vaccine is serious shingles outbreaks in the older population.]
Children who catch mumps naturally gain lifelong immunity but are at no risk of atrophy or sterility. Mumps vaccination was not recommended by the BMA, JCVI and Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain from at least 1974 and prior to the 1988 introduction of the MMR [see below].
A reason unvaccinated individuals are not developing mumps as adults is that they caught natural mumps as children and this may have been asymptomatic [ie. they showed no symptoms]. Asymptomatic infection is a known phenomenon and becomes more common as the severity of infectious diseases wanes in the population over time.
In contrast, the hypothesis put by the authors of the paper cited below make little sense – they suggest the unvaccinated are not catching mumps as adults [when the vaccinated are] is because of high vaccination uptake rates. If that were the case then the vaccinated would not be catching mumps as adults either.
VACCINATION NOT WORKING
The vaccination is not working as shown by peer reviewed paper attached from the Journal “Vaccine”:-
“Early waning of immunity in children after the second dose may contribute to reduced vaccine effectiveness for mumps prevention.” Effectiveness of Jeryl Lynn-containing vaccine in Spanish children – Vaccine (2009)
UNVACCINATED NOT DEVELOPING MUMPS
“The lack of cases among unvaccinated individuals may reflect the high uptake of vaccine, and an investigation is ongoing to determine coverage rates for the birth cohorts involved.”

MUMPS VACCINATION NOT RECOMMENDED – BMA, JCVI & RPSGB
“Since mumps and its complications are very rarely serious there is little indication for the routine use of mumps vaccine”: British National Formulary (’BNF’) 1985 and 1986 – PDF ATTACHED
The BNF is a joint publication of the BMA and RPSGB.
Freedom of Information documents show the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and Ministry of Defence agreed as early as 1974 that:-
“there was no need to introduce routine vaccination against mumps” because “complications from the disease were rare” JCVI minutes 11 Dec 1974.

Generation Rescue is a parent-founded and parent-led non-profit organization with more than 1,000 parent volunteers all over the world. This site provides information on the 14 flawed studies that pro-vaccine proponents say “prove” no connection between vaccines and autism. You be the judge.
Autism’s impact has reached education, health services and the workplace, becoming an issue grappled with not only the families involved, but our entire society – especially as these children age into adolescence and young adulthood. These statistics tell some of the story:
In Pennsylvania, the number of children affected by autism has skyrocketed 876 percent between 1993 and 2003.
Autism, a developmental disability, remains a mystery that affects one in every 150 American children – almost one in every 94 boys.
In 2007, children with autism shared the sixth most commonly classified disability receiving special education services.
The lifetime cost of routine daily and medical care for a child with autism ranges from $3.5 million to $5 million, amassing to nearly $90 billion annually nationwide.
Nearly two dozen medical studies prove that vaccines can cause autism
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
NaturalNews– Mainstream doctors and media pundits are notorious for claiming that the vaccine-autism debate is over and that no legitimate scientific evidence exists to suggest even a possible link between vaccinations and autism spectrum disorders (ASD): case closed. But a thoroughly-researched report recently published by Arjun Walia over at Activist Post reveals that there are at least 22 published scientific studies that show a link between vaccines and autism and that there are many more out there with similar findings.’…
