It has been an eternally debated topic, that the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine causes or increases the risk of developing autism.

Parents, especially those who already have children with ASD, are less and less encouraged to vaccinate their newly born babies.

In a recent research the JAMA (the Journal of American Medical Association) came up with great results. Please read below

“Conclusions and Relevance In this large sample of privately insured children with older siblings, receipt of the MMR vaccine was not associated with increased risk of ASD, regardless of whether older siblings had ASD. These findings indicate no harmful association between MMR vaccine receipt and ASD even among children already at higher risk for ASD.” April 21,2015
