Dr Wakefield was caught up in the vaccine damage fallout from MMR when parents brought him, and his team, their vaccine bowel damaged children. Supported by his hospital, he then said in a public meeting that single vaccines would be a good idea over MMR. When the shit hit the fan he was thrown to the wolves (by the likes of Professor Zuckerman), and is a perfect example of what happens when you criticise vaccines. They are now trying to break him (take away his licence and stop him being an expert witness for the vaccine damaged) with a medical kangaroo court. You can see why medical industry people keep their heads below the parapet, unless they fancy a new job in Australia or the USA.
