In brief: No.

There have been multiple studies conclusively showing no connection between the two and the original study suggesting a relationship between MMR vaccination and autism has since been debunked and shown to be fraudulent.

In brief: Scientists say No

As child psychologist and mataternal-fetal specialist, I am advocate for families affected by autism.
As scientist, i must follow the facts at this time--no relationship. But there is much we do not know. So we need to continue research into all possible causes of autism while also funding work on helping children achieve the highest level of functioning possible.

In brief: No

There was a small study many years ago funded (fraudulently not disclosed) by the anti vaccine lobbyist lawyers which resulted in some suggestion of this.
It was later retracted by the Lancet when this was disclosed. Many subsequent years of global research has not shown any association. Many children have died from the devastating effects of this misinformation.

In brief: No-Absolutely Not

There is not 1 shred of scientific evidence connecting MMR with autism.
In fact, a recent review of 1000 research articles all reaffirmed no connection. Let us put thsi false notion to bed, once and for all.

In brief: No

The original study that indicated a possible linkage was rescinded by the authors as fraudulent.
The are likely a number of factors, including genetics, environment, and immune factors that play a role in autism.
