'Overall, we found that the rate of first febrile seizures was 10% higher among vaccinated children' (1)

 'Overall, our data suggest that MMR vaccination and the other indicators for febrile seizures follow a multiplicative

model; the rate of febrile seizures in all subgroups of children is approximately 2.75 times higher within 2 weeks

of MMR vaccination than it would have been had the children not been vaccinated.' (1)

The dramatic difference between the Abstract Conclusion ('a small transient increase') and what the study actually found warrants an investigation.
