"Even the nonprofit organization Autism Speaks states on its website that the “scientific evidence is clear” that vaccines do not cause autism. On their site, they have published a 2015 study that concluded there was no link between the MMR vaccine and autism. That same year, the advocacy group issued a strong statement urging parents to have their children vaccinated.

However, opponents of vaccines are still not swayed.

They note that the federal court that dismissed links between vaccines and autism has also awarded numerous families compensation for brain damage caused to their children by vaccines. Those judgments include high-profile cases in 2009 and 2013."

"the parents of yet another child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) were awarded a lump sum of more than $810,000 (plus an estimated $30-40,000 per year for autism services and care) in compensation by the Court, which ruled that the measels-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine had caused acute brain damage that led to his autism spectrum disorder.

The family of 10-year-old Bailey Banks won their case quietly and without fanfare in June of 2007, but the ruling has only now come to public attention. In the remarkably clear and eloquent decision, Special Master Richard Abell ruled that the Banks had successfully demonstrated that “the MMR vaccine at issue actually caused the conditions from which Bailey suffered and continues to suffer.”

Bailey’s diagnosis is Pervasive Developmental Disorder — Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) which has been recognized as an autism spectrum disorder by CDC, HRSA and the other federal health agencies since at least the 1990s.

In his conclusion, Special Master Abell ruled that Petitioners had proven that the MMR had directly caused a brain inflammation illness called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) which, in turn, had caused the autism spectrum disorder PDD-NOS in the child:

"The case of Bailey Banks, decided in 2007, earned renewed media attention in February
2009 after the government reached a financial settlement with the child’s family. In its decision,
the court found that 15-month-old Bailey had a seizure following administration of the MMR
vaccine, and developed a neurological disorder known as acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.
That condition, in turn, led to “pervasive developmental delay not otherwise specified"

"In spite of the efforts of medical science, manufacturers and physicians, vaccines sometimes have side effects. Adverse consequences may be suffered by the recipients of vaccines. The conventional wisdom is that most of these consequences are minor and short term. Some tenderness and redness may be experienced at the site of the vaccination and the child may have a low fever. In exceptional circumstances, the consequences may be serious, such as high fever, systemic joint or muscle pain, seizures or anaphylactic shock. In rare situations, a child may suffer permanent disability such as neurological damage, or may even die."
