"After years of controversy and making parents mistrust vaccines, along with collecting $674,000 from lawyers who would benefit from suing vaccine makers, it was discovered he had made the whole thing up. The Lancet publicly apologized and reported that further investigation led to the discovery that he had fabricated everything
In the intervening years, millions have been spent on studying this further to see if there was anything that could connect autism and vaccines. This is what they found."
16 years ago, a doctor published a study. It was completely made up, and it made us all sicker.

No, manufacturers are not immune to lawsuits. There is one lawsuit now about the efficacy of the MMR and the claims by the manufacturer.
Drug manufacturers cannot be sued due to normal drug reactions.
No, drug manufacturers do not pay for all of vaccine research. They often pick up a promising vaccine in the early stages and then pay for the research through FDA approval (Phase 3). Then the government of pretty much every nation pays for post-marketing testing to ensure that vaccines are safe and as a effective as claimed.
This makes vaccines different than any other medication.
No medication is perfectly safe. Water isn't perfectly safe. There is no such thing as a perfectly safe product of any kind, but overall vaccines are probably the safest medication we have. Tylenol by comparison is one of the most dangerous drugs.
What we do is utilize VAERS system and post marketing (phase 4) studies as we have done for decades to ensure that vaccines remain as safe as possible.
