Andrew Wakefield is the British director and co-author of the controversial documentary VAXXED. Considered by many parents of autistic children as a pioneer on the medical front, Wakefield's bold stance against the MMR Vaccine has had him embroiled in controversy.
Having received his medical license from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School, his study into gastrointestinal diseases began a series of published articles that ultimately resulted in the British revoking his medical license with claims of fraud.
Andrew Jeremy Wakefield (born c. 1957) is a British former gastroenterologist and medical researcher, known for his fraudulent 1998 research paper in support of the now-discredited claim that there was a link between the administration of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, and the appearance of autism and bowel disease.
