Editor's correction:

A correction has been made to the story Lawmakers Express Distrust of CDC on Vaccine Studies, which was published on October 10, 2006.

In the editing process, two sentences were combined, which ended up changing the intended meaning.

The corrected sentence reads: The CDC says recent studies indicate no link between autism and childhood vaccinations, even one that contained mercury, a position supported by many in the medical establishment.

It previously stated that the opposite position was supported by the medical community.

We regret the error.
