Autism and the MMR Vaccine
What is autism?
Why do people think that vaccines can cause autism? (How do vaccines help the immune system defend the body?)
Why do many doctors and scientists believe that the MMR vaccine does not cause autism?
Is there any research going on to find out if the MMR vaccine is linked to autism?
Aren't the diseases prevented by the MMR vaccine mild, when compared to the life-long symptoms of autism?
Should my child have the MMR vaccine?
