Dr. Nancy Talks Vaccines on Morning Joe

Check out this video from Morning Joe which aired this morning. Co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski had Chris Mooney, author of Unscientific America, and NBC’s Dr. Nancy Snyderman on the show this morning to discuss vaccines and the Lancet retraction. Both Dr. Snyderman and Mr. Mooney talked about scientific illiteracy in America, and the need to move past the vaccine and autism debate, especially since the Wakefield study has been expunged from the scientific record. When asked about whether there were any studies that suggested a link between vaccines and autism Dr. Snyderman unequivocally stated “no.”
