Does the MMR vaccine cause autism. Is it ok to have other vaccinations at the same time. I believe children are given 2 others with the MMR at 12 mths?

In brief: No

Vaccine haters in the 80's told us they caused cp, in the 90's crib death ; now autism.
Court testimony revealed a money making hoax behind the MMR scare and the dr lost his license to practice. The vaccines have been the single best lifesaver for kids in a hundred years.The number given at one time has been proven safe and effective.Get them all and be safe.

In brief: No, it does not.

A few years ago it was thought that some vaccinations may have lead to autism.
We now know that this research was faked and there is in fact no connection between autism and vaccinations. There are many reported cased world wide of children developing autism who have never received any vaccinations. It is ok to have these vaccinations at the same time.

In brief: no

The wakefield study linking the vaccine and autism has been shown to be false.
Research shows that the rate of autism in unvaccinated children is the same as those who receive immunizations. The low rates of illness since we started with shots have made some parents think these conditions aren't serious but these illness can cause disability and death.Reason.
