Two Austitic Kids Awarded Millions
The federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has awarded millions to two families of autistic children. While they are not admitting that vaccines could caused their autism, it does open the door:
The government did not admit that vaccines caused autism, at least in one of the children. Both cases were "unpublished," meaning information is limited, and access to medical records and other exhibits is blocked. Much of the information presented here comes from documents found at the vaccine court website.
Some observers will say the vaccine-induced encephalopathy (brain disease) documented in both children is unrelated to their autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Others will say there is plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise.

I think that these rulings open the door for more research between vaccinations and autism, it would be helpful if they would release all of the data that they used to make their decision. Do you think that vaccinations played a role in your child's autism?
