But something is not right at present with measles becoming epidemic around the world, not just the UK which begs the question, does the measles vaccine even work?

It is bollocks - millions have had this jab, but how many got Autism? While the figures suggest a 12 fold increase in Autism over the last 40 years, this is largely down to an expanding definition and better diagnosis. Seeing as MMR only started being used in 1988, there cannot be a correlation between it and the increase in Autism diagnosis, as the latter began long before the former.
And it wasn't just the BMJ who discredited Wakefield, but also the CDC, the GMC, the Lancet, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, the UK National Health Service and the Cochrane Library. Pretty much everyone of the most respected medical institutes and journals has panned his research.
EDIT to add: Even the National Autistic Society dismisses any link...edit on 28/4/13 by stumason because: (no reason given)

Measles isn't that bad.
Besides only two people....if that, have died from the disease in the past ten years.
