No: Although there was a lot of information floating around the web about a link between the MMR vaccine and autism, there are no credible studies to establish such a link. The lead author of the study that established such links has been widely discredited for manipulating the evidence and data in his research.

No: The majority of ear infections are caused by viruses, so antibiotics won't help. Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics if your baby is less than 6 months of age, or if the infection is severe. Older toddlers who have mild illness or whose diagnosis is uncertain can be watched without antibiotics, with close follow up over the next 24-48 hours.

Yes: Depending on the age of your child your doctor may do a renal ultrasound to identify any anatomical problems that could have predisposed to the uti. Your doctor may also obtain a vcug, a test that checks for the presence of urinary reflux, the back-flow of urine from the bladder to the kidneys, which can also predispose to urinary tract infections. Other tests may follow depending on those results.
