No scientific link.: There is no scientifically validated link between immunizations and autism. There have been "accusations" tthat the preservative (thimerosol) previously present in many vacines and/or administration of the MMR as a combination vaccine increased the risk of autism, but many well-performed studies show that no link exists.

Blocked tear duct: Many newborns and young infants have a blockage of the tear duct, a small tube in the middle corner of the eye that drains tears. Until that tube is fully open, tears and mucous can build up. By one year of age the tube should be open fully and the tears and mucous discharge should end. If the condition persists after age 1 year referral to any eye doctor is recommended.

Yes: The average age for walking is 9-15 months. If your child is not walking by age 18 months, that is different enough that your doctor will recommend having an evaluation to see if there is a cause for this delay and consider beginning physical therapy to help your child reach this milestone.
