Finally after years of reassuring patients of the safety of the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella) the UK government finally has been forced to concede that it can have serious side effects.
A UK court ruled that the vaccine caused severe brain damage in a boy, now 18 years, and has ordered a compensation.
The boy suffered epileptic fits and became unresponsive after the MMR vaccination when he was only 13 months old.
The family was awarded a compensation of 90.000pounds or 11.392.444Yen. The judgement sends hope to the parents in the UK who are also fighting for compensation.
