  • my son has autism and he has not had the MMR or any other booster. i don't really think the shots are a danger, but we're holding off for more research to be done. He's not quite 3, so there's nothing wrong with waiting for a little while.

  • Sure. I've seen several moms on here who's kids fit that description exactly.

  • Yup. Vaccination is not scientifically proven to be *the cause* of autism. There are links, and some research, but no %100 causation proofs. Autism is thought to be genetic as well as environmental.

  • Yep. I know quite a few. What's even better is I know people who were on completely different vaccination schedules all have autism. To have autism you have to have a genetic predisposition which is a malformation of chromosome either 15 or 16.
