Bear with me--more librarian-type stuff

This is a holding-pen for a bibliography of journal articles disputing the idea that vaccination has any relationship to autism. Just move on by (unless you want the list). As of now (2/8/08) I have just copied and pasted a couple of others' lists; I haven't examined, edited, added to, or verified any of the citations, so do not give me any credit for any of this!
Thanks to Interverbal and Stavros, who have done all the work.

IOM Report

AAP especially "Autism Facts for Parents" which states:

The higher number of ASD cases is NOT due to vaccines. At one time it was thought
that thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative in vaccines, could contribute to ASD.
However, studies have shown there is no link. Indeed, thimerosal was removed from
childhood vaccines by 2002, and the cases of ASD have still risen.
