No: There have been numerous studies on the subject of vaccines and autism, particularly MMR vaccine. None of the quality peer review studies have shown any connection. A prior british study done many years ago has been disproven many times and the journal that published it has already retracted that article for numerous reasons. Get vaccinated!
