Abstract Flawed studies about complications in vaccination programmes may have serious consequences for community health, as illustrated by a previous report on the adverse effect of pertussis vaccination and a more recent report about a suspected link between MMR vaccination and autistic spectrum disorders. CONCLUSION: The Editorial Board of The Lancet has apologized for having published a paper which has misled its readers about the risk of MMR vaccination. Due to the important role of TV and newspapers in giving information about health promotion, these media should also be willing to correct false information.
