Dr. Hotez talks about Vaccines and Rachel’s Autism

Is there wiggle room about the idea that vaccines do not cause autism? Is it possible that sometimes in some particularly vulnerable children that vaccines act as a trigger for autism?

Dr. Peter Hotez’s new book Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel’s Autism leaves no wiggle room in the answer. Vaccines have nothing to do with autism: they do not and cannot cause autism. Dr. Hotez is a unique voice to answer this question as scientist, doctor, vaccine researcher, and father of an autistic adult. We were privileged enough to talk to him on our podcast and bring the conversation to you!
