In my human biology class, we are going over vaccines and how people use to think vaccines caused autism. It's proven that, that is false. Why do some people still believe vaccines cause autism?

 Because the MMR shot is usually given around 18 months, which coincides with the age where a lot of autism characteristics develop.

I don't believe the myth. My son has autism. His father has autism. It's purely genetic in my family.

That makes sense. Some diseases appear more with age.
