Below is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s Facebook introduction to Full Measure with Sharyl Atttkison's January 6th national news report:
"Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, a world-renowned pediatric neurologist, was the government’s top expert witness in many #vaccine court cases and testified that vaccines didn’t cause #autism. But now Dr. Zimmerman has provided remarkable new information. He claims that during the vaccine hearings all those years ago, he privately told government lawyers that vaccines can, and did cause autism in some children. Zimmerman told them that he’d discovered “exceptions in which vaccinations could cause autism." He said, "I explained that in a subset of children, vaccine induced fever and immune stimulation did cause regressive brain disease with features of autism spectrum disorder.”"

The Full Measure report has received widespread praise.
The full affidavit of Dr. Andrew Zimmerman signed in September 7, 2018 about significant events in 2007 is below.
On Friday June 15, 2007, Dr. Zimmerman, a government expert witness, told Dept of Justice Omnibus Attorney Vincent Matanowski that vaccines can cause autism in subsets of children in a similar way to how vaccines caused autism in the Poling case, which the government settled.
Dr. Zimmerman was scheduled to testify in one of the autism omnibus cases on Monday June 18, 2007. After telling Matanowski he would testify that vaccines can cause autism, he was told by DOJ attorneys he would not be testifying sometime over the weekend of June 15-17, 2007.
Later, in October/November 2007, Dr. Zimmerman says Matanowski gave a "highly misleading" summary of Dr. Zimmerman's expert opinion during his summary in the Hazlehurst case.
Dr. Zimmerman did not know that Matanowski misrepresented his expert opinion until Rolf Hazlehurst showed Zimmerman the transcript of the closing argument in 2017 or 2018, more than a decade after Matanowski misled the Court.
Matanowski's salary is paid by US taxpayers. but it appears to work more for the interests of vaccine manufactures than the interests of vaccine injured infants and children.
More than 1 million children have received an autism diagnosis in the 11 years since Matanowski's actions in 2007, just in the United States.
