Communicating science to the public: MMR vaccine and autism [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Media attention and consequent public concerns about vaccine safety followed publication of a small case-series of children who developed autism after receipt of the measles–mumps–rubella (MMR) vaccine. Many well-controlled studies performed subsequently found no evidence that MMR vaccine causes autism. However, despite these studies, some parents remain concerned that the MMR vaccine is not safe. We will discuss the origins of the hypothesis that the MMR vaccine causes autism, studies performed to test the hypothesis, how these studies have been communicated to the public, and some suggested strategies for how this communication can be improved.
