CDC Study: No link between autism and vaccines

Sunday, March 31, 2013 - 12:04am

New research finds no link between autism and early childhood vaccines.

That is the conclusion of a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

CDC researchers collected data on 256 children with autism, and 752 children without it.

The children were all born between 1994 and 1999.

Scientists found no connection between the disorder and the number of vaccines a child gets in one day or during the first two years.

The study is in the Journal of Pediatrics.
