No Link Between Autism and Vaccines

While some people have publicly raised concerns over the years about a possible link between the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), numerous studies have found no connection between the 2 (or between any other vaccine and ASD).

 

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention asserts that immunizations remain a safe, effective way to protect your child against serious diseases.

If you have concerns about vaccines, talk about them with your child’s doctor.
