Dr. Andrew Wakefield study that vaccines can contribute to autism is considered fradulent by the British Medicial Journal.  Dr. Wakefield through his research found that vaccines contribute to autism if too many vaccines are taken at once.  He recommends the infacts get a couple shots a time every month.  14 other studies performed after this one found no evidence of vaccines causing autism.  The doctor still stands by his study today.  He said the data was not manipulated in any way.  Many of the people that had peer reviewed this study do not support it anymore.  However, other doctors that peer reviewed this study still stand by the results.  They still support  some of these findings.  How accurate is this trial is still under debate?  Many Americans and UK parents are not vaccinating their children due to this study.  Autism in children is at an all time high.  No one has been able to figure out why as of now.

There is a misconception that homeopaths recommend not giving infant's vaccines.  This is a fallacy.  There are certain homeopaths that recommend against infant vaccines.  However, other homeopaths have differing opinions.  Peter Fischer, the homeopathic physician to the royal family, says vaccines should be taken by infants.  Homeopathy does not offer any substitutes to childhood vaccinations.

In conclusion, homeopathy is not against vaccines.  Homeopathy offers no substitutes to vaccines.  Some homeopaths may be against vaccines but that is their opinion.  Wakefield's study have made people look for alternatives to vaccines.
