You may have heard some parents voice concerns that certain childhood vaccines are linked to autism, or that administering several different vaccines at once puts a child at greater risk for autism.
There is no scientific evidence that vaccines are linked to autism, a developmental disorder that interferes with communication and behavior, or that receiving several vaccines in 1 day puts the immune system into overdrive—with autism as the potential result.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to emphasize that vaccines are, on the whole, a safe and effective means of preventing serious diseases.
