In brief: No

Some people have blamed the rise in diabetes on the increased number of childhood vaccinations.
The largest and best conducted study to date (new england journal of medicine, april 1, 2004) examined public health data on nearly 740, 000 children, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, looking at type 1 diabetes (the autoimmune type) rates. There was no evidence of a link of diabetes with any vaccines.
