Italian Court Rules MMR Vaccine Causes Autism


The Italian Court of Rimini has ruled in a ground-breaking decision that causation between an MMR vaccine and the resulting autism in a young child “has been established.”

The Italian court ruled that the unnamed child “has been damaged by irreversible complications due to vaccination (prophylaxis trivalent MMR)”. The child received the vaccine in March of 2004 and on returning home immediately developed adverse symptoms. During the next year the child regressed, receiving the autism diagnosis one year later and is now 100% disabled by the disease.

The court has ordered the Ministry of Health to compensate the child with a 15 year annuity and to reimburse the parents of their court cost.Bottom of Form
