A fifteen page story about the MMR vaccination controversy. As ever, I'm sure a few spelling errors have slipped past me. Feel free to point any out so I can correct them.

I'm surprised (and disappointed) that you didn't come right out and make it clear that Wakefield is no longer recognized as a doctor. His license to practice medicine in the UK was revoked, and he isn't licensed to practice in North America.

Writing a paper and this comic was very informative. Does anybody have sources i could use to cite in my paper?
