‘Coffin nailed and superglued shut’ on MMR-autism link

Giving the vaccine to children at high risk of the disorder doesn't make them more susceptible, large Danish study shows

The latest study to debunk the MMR-autism link reassures parents of children who are more susceptible to the disorder that they will not be put at even higher risk if they have the vaccine.

According to data from more than 650,000 mostly vaccinated children with more than five million person-years of follow-up, Danish researchers found no difference in incidence of autism between MMR-vaccinated children and their non-vaccinated peers.
