Autism and Vaccines

PositiveTips

Concerns exist about the risk for autism and childhood vaccinations. However, the Centers for Disease Control have evaluated the association between levels of immunologic stimuli from vaccines during the first 2 years of life and the risk of autism spectrum disease (ASD). Researchers found neither the total number of antigens received during the first years of life, nor the number received on a single day of vaccination was related to the risk of ASD.

PositiveTip: The known risks of not immunizing a child are far greater than the recommended vaccines.
