Complete the following three-part assignment in a Microsoft® Word document.

Step 1 of 3: Review each of the following articles from the university library. Both focus on the question of whether or not vaccines cause autism:

The Vaccine-Autism Connection

Citation: Flaherty, D. (2011). The Vaccine-Autism Connection: A Public Health Crisis Caused by Unethical Medical Practices and Fraudulent Science. Annals of Pharmacotherapy, 1302-1304.


The Link Between the MMR Vaccine and Autism is Real

 

Citation: Wakefield, Andrew. "The Link Between the MMR Vaccine and Autism Is Real." Why Is Autism on the Rise? Ed. Clay Farris Naff. Farmington Hills, MI: Greenhaven Press, 2014. At Issue. Rpt. from "Transcript: Statement from Andrew Wakefield." Age of Autism. 2013. Opposing Viewpoints in Context. Web. 28 Nov. 2015.

Step 2 of 3: For each article, write a paragraph that answers the following questions:

  • Is the author qualified to write about the relationship between vaccines and autism? Why or why not?
  • What was the year of publication? Is the article current enough to be credible? Why or why not?
  • What is the author's main point and what kind of evidence does he or she use to back up this point? Be specific.
  • How can you make sure facts presented in the article are true? 

Step 3 of 3: Write a paragraph explaining which of the two articles was more persuasive to you, and why.
