Simpsonwood and Vaccines

Simpsonwood refers to the Scientific Review of Vaccine Safety Datalink Information conference by 51  vaccine and vaccine safety researchers and experts. A CDC conference to discuss thimerosal and vaccines, it was held over two days at the Simpsonwood Methodist retreat and conference center in Norcross, Georgia (near Atlanta) in June 2000.

The AAP and FDA had called, as a precautionary measure, for the removal of thimerosal from vaccines the previous year.

Although a report and transcripts of the Simpsonwood meetings are available, that hasn’t led some, including Robert Kennedy, Jr. to allege that Simpsonwood was part of a big conspiracy to hide a link between vaccines and autism.

It wasn’t.
