Vaxxed documentary axed from being screened by Queensland council after criticism from leaders & medical experts

Anti-vaccine film Vaxxed has been pulled from screening by a Queensland council after a hail of criticism from community leaders and medical experts.

After pressure from The Sunday Telegraph, Logan City Council has banned an anti-vaccine group from using a council property for the film’s Australian debut.

The 2014 movie — which is directed by disgraced anti-vaccine activist Andrew Wakefield — was controversially pulled from actor Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.

It alleges a cover-up by the American Centers for Disease Control over supposed links between autism and the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine.
