hoax[edit]

Can we redirect this page to 'MMR Vaccine hoax' ? Calling it a controversy is being generous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.5.246.66 (talk) 23:00, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

While I have to agree that it's silly that vaccines are being pointed at for "autism" (Autism doesn't make you retarded...), renaming it a "hoax" would be a very noticable show of bias. --Yukari Yakumo (talk) 23:04, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
"Hoax" is the wrong word because Wakefield didn't do it for fun. "Fraud" is the right word. --Hob Gadling (talk) 07:31, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

The CDC Whistleblower[edit]

I can't find any information on the page about the CDC whistleblower and the associated findings as presented in the "documentary" Vaxxed. This seems like new information that would definitely have it's place in the "Media" section, and perhaps elsewhere too.

Anyone knows if there has been a rigorous external review of what is presented in the film? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jul059 (talkcontribs) 22:39, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

It's a lie. --Hob Gadling (talk) 07:33, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Would like to translate the article in Romanian[edit]

Hi dear contributors,

I am a Romanian citizen, very worried about increasing vaccine controversy in my country.

Currently there's a measles outbreak happening. National public health officials said an ongoing measles outbreak in Romania has infected more than 3,400 people and killed at least 17 despite an aggressive nationwide vaccination campaign.[1]

Meanwhile, MMR vaccination rates have fallen in recent years in Romania to below the 95% threshold recommended to interrupt transmission. According to the ECDC, coverage for one dose was just 86% in 2015 in Romania compared with 97% in 2007.[2]

I would like to make it possible for Romanian speaking people to have access to this article in Romanian, as Wikipedia is a much more trustworthy source of information compared to the vast amount of blogs and media outlets that push a strong anti-vaccine message.

My plan is to dedicate a few hours per week for this task and do it as soon as possible. However, I am new to Wikipedia editing and I could use your advice on how to get the changes approved, since we are talking about another language than English.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
