A newly released U.S. government study finds children who receive multiple vaccines are not at an increased risk for developing autism, confirming an abundance of earlier research that found childhood vaccines are not related to autism.
According to a report published in the current edition of the Journal of Pediatrics, researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) investigated close to 1,000 children with and without autism. The study found no connection between autism and either the number of vaccines a child receives or the number of vaccines a child receives in a single day.
