Here is the CNN report. It is always a sensitive thing to post about this topic these days and I want to be respectful of all parents and their desire to give the best care to their beloved children. But, the retraction of this study is significant I think for a couple of reasons.
One, it is a fairly big deal for a medical journal to "fully retract (a) paper from the published record."
Secondly, the influence of the Wakefield study has been fairly significant - I can attest to the many times I have run across its referral in my own research or witnessed its direct and also sometimes indirect influence. I read the Wakefield research years ago, this is not the first time it has been discredited. As far as I have been aware, it has not held much esteem among valid research for quite a while, you could argue that it never really did. Nevertheless, since it was published in 1998, the number of parents who are choosing not to vaccinate their children has rapidly grown. I am not saying that this study is the sole catalyst for this, but it would be false to claim that it has not been a factor - the waves of this study, I feel, have been felt by many without really even being aware.
And on a third note, no matter where you stand in your own personal convictions about vaccinations - there is always something to be said about research and the necessity of validating any research through strict, ethical, and unbiased standards, the challenges of doing that, and the impact of research and study on our society.
