Autistic Children Ineligible For Vaccine Funds : NPR, Feb. 12, 2009:
A federal court has issued a ruling that families claiming their child's autism is caused by vaccines will not be eligible for a previously established program to compensate people injured by vaccines.See Autism Decisions and Background Information on the court's website. Just now, I wasn't able to connect to the background information or to today's rulings. I guess that news of this is spreading through the community of claimants and the servers are overwhelmed by thousands of people trying to connect at once.
The special court set up by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims ruled that neither a preservative used in vaccines nor the vaccines themselves could be linked to autism.
