About the Movie
In 2014, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism. The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker records the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provides the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC. Dr. Hooker enlists the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine may cause autism. Wakefield directs this documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up committed by the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens. Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Slickly produced but scientifically dubious hodgepodge of free-floating paranoia, heart-rending imagery - lots of shots of cute infants who reportedly were damaged by vaccines - and anti-Big Pharma conspiracy mongering.
Rotten: "Vaxxed" should come with a warning label: "May cause irrational anxiety, especially if taken with an empty head."
Rotten: "The Film They Don't Want You to See" sales pitch will now draw more eyeballs than this disingenuous screed deserves.
Rotten: As a film-maker, Wakefield could surely use a regimen of steroids.
conspiracy theory central
Utter nonsense which only those with a slightly warped view of the world will find educational. For those who believe that Elvis is indeed dead, that NASA indeed landed on the moon, that the WTC disaster wasn't the work of US intelligence, and that Obama was really born in the US: this film has nothing to offer you.
Corruption in the CDC
Good organizations sometimes get infected with corrupt individuals. And then bad things happen.
Everyone should see this!
This film is not anti-vax but is about the fraud in the CDC. We deserve the truth about vaccine safety studies if we are to trust them with our health.
Very compelling and easy to understand information that will infuriate you especially if you have a child injured by vaccines. It was hard for me to watch but it is so important to me that now I want everyone to watch this film.
Even if you are pro vaccine, you should want all the info you can get and should want the safest vaccines possible. That is what this film calls for.
