The New Castle Record has received feedback on the article about the Ponton family’s struggles with autism and other neurological disorders that their son Hunter has. The family said the onset of the disorders started showing up right after Hunter received his last MMR vaccinations, and the family’s concerns about whether the vaccinations triggered the disorders.
The article cited reference material the family has relied on during their research. Other reference material, including several scientific studies, have shown no direct link between MMR vaccinations and autism.
According to unisef.org, only smallpox has been eradicated by vaccines, saving approximately five million lives each year.
