…when the paper was published I recommended in a highly publicized press conference that single measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines be used instead of MMR until the issue of MMR’s questionable safety was resolved scientifically. These vaccines were available in the US and UK at the time.
After this recommendation was made, in the UK the government withdrew the importation license for the single vaccine and Merck – the manufacturer of the MMR vaccine – withdrew the option of single vaccines in the US. In short, parents and doctors who did not want MMR could no longer get single vaccines…

On October 1, 1988, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (Public Law 99-660) created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). The VICP was established to ensure an adequate supply of vaccines, stabilize vaccine costs, and establish and maintain an accessible and efficient forum for individuals found to be injured by certain vaccines.
The Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund provides funding for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to compensate vaccine-related injury or death claims for covered vaccines administered on or after October 1, 1988.
The Trust Fund is funded by a $0.75 excise tax on vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for routine administration to children. The excise tax is imposed on each dose (disease that is prevented) of a vaccine. Trivalent influenza vaccine for example, is taxed $0.75 because it prevents one disease; measles-mumps-rubella vaccine, which prevents three diseases, is taxed $2.25.
