Yes you can say "no" to shots.
However, autism and shots have absolutely nothing to do with each other. So if you have other concerns for not vaccinating and protecting your baby, that's up to you! It is totally your choice. If you think not vaccinating will PREVENT autism, you're sorely mistaken.
But yes, you can wait or not vaccinate altogether. Keep in mind, though, it makes it much more likely the baby will contract one or more of the otherwise possibly prevented diseases.
The fact that you already have one autistic child increases the likelihood any other kids will be on the spectrum. Vaccinations don't have a thing to do with it.
