I am wondering what other people think about this. I have read things that say autism is linked to vaccines, and I have read things that say differently. I have 2 kids and 1 on the way. To be honest I am worried about them getting up to date on their shots. Neither of them are up to date, and I am wondering if I am even going to let my new baby when it gets here be vaccinated. I love my kids, and I have their best interest in mind, but I am so worried that the vaccines may cause autism. To my knowledge, there is no autism in my family, or my husbands. Autism would be such a sad, heartbreaking and tragic thing to deal with. I need help.Answer Question

The scientific evidence does not support the idea that vaccines cause autism at all. I tend to make medical decisions based on scientific evidence rather than anacedotes from others.
I think the article "A Broken Trust: Lessons from the Vaccine–Autism Wars" is very interesting. It discusses how researchers long ago rejected the hypothesis that vaccines cause autism, yet many parents don't believe them. So she examines how scientists could bridge the gap between evidence and doubt.
