In the anti-vaxxer community, there is a belief that there is a connection between Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and vaccines. Babies receive multiple vaccines when they are between 2 and 4 months old. This is the age range that is most common for SIDS. This has led people to believe the two are related.
According to the CDC, studies have found that vaccines do not cause and are not linked to SIDS. There have been multiple studies and safety reviews that have looked into possible links. The evidence accumulated over many years does not show any link between childhood vaccines and SIDS.
Emma Dalmayne is an autistic rights activist and advocate living in the UK. She works for Neurodivergent Labour and is a publicity and communications officer. Emma is the CEO of AIM: Autistic Inclusive Meets Group. This organization was created for the support of autistic adults and parents/ carers of autistic children. It is a way to serve the autistic community. Emma is a co-founder at The Autistic Cooperative. She has been fighting vaccine misinformation and quackery for a while now and has worked hard to fight for rights.
Recently, she attended a protest made by AIM in London to protest a Vaxxed 2 showing and was attacked by Polly Tommey, who is the producer of Vaxxed. Anti-vaxxers accused her group of being aggressive and violent, but the autistics all were peacefully protesting the scene. Emma would like to be able to attend the Autism One protest in May, but needs help with funding. It costs $516 both ways to fly to the US, and if anyone else wants her to help the US even more with rights and needs, we would love your help. Thank you for your consideration.
Vaccines do not cause autism. Autism “cures” such as MMS, Chelation, GAPs, GcMAF, etc have been condemned by the US Food and Drug Administration. The FDA has sent out a few warnings since its original announcement. Autism is not curable, and there are genetic mutations linked to autism, but not to vaccines. The CDC claims that vaccines do not cause autism, so this is medically correct.
