    that really struck me. For the FIRST TIME ever, (I"ve been going to a pediatrician practice and have seen over 10 drs + a GYN practice where I also see over 10 drs - both over a 13 yr time span) he said he feels the MMR vax is too much too soon. I've NEVER heard a dr say this before. IN fact, back when breaking up the MMR was becoming commonplace, the drs would still be sure to point out it was a courtesy - not something they ness agreed with. But then I thought about it when I got in the car. My Gen Practitioner has a son with autism. Very interesting, no?
