Family to receive federal settlement over vaccines

A federal court that handles claims for vaccine injuries has awarded compensation to the parents of an autistic child for symptoms that indirectly resulted from childhood vaccines. NBC's Pete Williams reports.
Terry and Jon Poling's 9-year-old daughter Hannah landed in the media spotlight this week as the federal government agreed to settle their case that childhood vaccinations allegedly complicated an underlying disorder in the child, resulting in autismlike symptoms. Jon Poling, a neurologist, called for thimerosal to be removed from flu shots: "Why take a chance?" he asked. MSNBC/Associated Press
