The first court award in a vaccine-autism claim is a big one. CBS News has learned the family of Hannah Poling will receive more than $1.5 million dollars for her life care; lost earnings; and pain and suffering for the first year alone.
In addition to the first year, the family will receive more than $500,000 per year to pay for Hannah's care. Those familiar with the case believe the compensation could easily amount to $20 million over the child's lifetime.

Alright, so $20 million over the course of the child's lifetime - a lot of which will go towards his medical bills from the past, present, and future - how much you think will be left afterwords for this child to live a comfortable life that he could have had without these conditions? Not to mention regardless of the money handed out, how is he supposed to enjoy it like someone without autism would (no offense meant)?
I feel terrible for this kid, I sincerely hope people step back and think about vaccinations more before giving them to their children, especially newly developed ones.
However, when I have tried to tell friends who have children how bad some (or more so most if not all) vaccinations are bad and not to get them for their children, they've gotten mad at me, and in one case I actually lost a friend because they got so angry that I'd give them such 'bad advice.'
Open your eyes people and do some research before getting any sort of vaccination!

For the vaccination consipiracy guys - perhaps that is how they will cull the population, by making everyone afraid to vaccinate.
