This is encouraging to see. Of course this is a racial issue. CDC scientists have covered up a known risk to African American boys. If this discussion continues to get attention in the black community, the CDC will address it--I expect officials are busy as we speak producing NEW research that shows no racial difference; the 2004 study was just a fluke. We were told a few months ago that Thompson was going to back away from his claim, but nothing was made public. I'm sure forces are prepared if this becomes an issue in the African American community.
August 10, 2016, Philadelphia Tribune: Forum addresses public's concern with vaccinations
In response to growing concerns centered around the topic of vaccination of children and the possible side affects such vaccinations might have on their health, the Philadelphia chapter of the NAACP held a forum to discuss the issue at Universal Audenried Charter High School, 3301 Tasker Ave., in South Philadelphia last Saturday.
During the forum guests viewed the documentary film, “Vaxxed: From Cover up to Catastrophe,” produced by Del Bigtree and Polly Tommey and directed by Andrew Wakefield, M.B.
The film takes viewers through its journey to investigate the possible harmful effects of the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccines and alleged attempts to cover up these effects by pharmaceutical companies who manufacture the vaccines and government and other officials who are said to benefit from their financial contributions.

As of July 1, children in California who have not been vaccinated can be denied a public education. Muhammad said a similar law was proposed in Florida.
“If someone is on public assistance and if they refuse to have their children vaccinated, their public assistance will be cut off and if they are in public housing they will be evicted. Even if they have a job that has to do with the public, they can be let go from that job,” Rodney Muhammad said....
Panelists included Minister Tony Muhammad, Author Sheena Edwards, Councilman Derek Green and mental health professional Charles Pitts.
During the panel Tony Muhammad said that the suspicions surrounding the use of drugs and chemicals to inflict other people are not without history in the U.S.
“Not only did they give us syphilis but they also gave Indians smallpox where they gave blankets containing smallpox to Indians which wiped out millions of their children,” he said.
“You are dealing with the World Health Organization which right now has admitted that in Kenya they gave tetanus shots to over 3 million Black girls between the ages of 13 and 16 and have admitted that 1 million of them are now sterile and cannot have children,” said Tony Muhammad....
