Study: MMR vaccination not tied to higher pediatric autism risk

Children who received the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine didn’t have higher odds of developing autism compared with those who weren’t given the MMR vaccine, according to a Danish study in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The findings, based on data involving 657,461 Danish children born from 1999 to 2010, also showed no association between MMR vaccination and increased autism risk among those who had siblings with autism and other risk factors.
