The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s comprehensive research study proves giving children multiple vaccines before age two does not cause autism.
Now, Maine parents can feel even better about immunizing their children to keep them safe. A brand-new, strict and long-term study just published in the American Journal of Pediatrics proves that children are not more likely to develop autism if they are immunized on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommended schedule. The results are great news for parents: protecting children as quickly as possible against as many diseases as possible does not cause autism. While every other study on vaccines and autism has shown exactly same thing, this study is the largest and longest look at how the number of vaccines children receive and when they receive before age 2 and when they receive them affects autism rates.
This study looked carefully and thoughtfully at:
- How many vaccines children receive before age two affects autism rates,
- How many vaccines children might receive in one day affects autism rates, and
- How individual vaccines like the Tdap vaccine for pertussis (whooping cough) and different ingredients in vaccines, like thimerosal affect autism rates.
But no matter what research the study authors did or reviewed, the conclusions were the same: there is not a connection between vaccines and autism.
This is a study Maine parents can trust. Parents worried that their child might be getting “too many vaccines too soon” don’t need to worry anymore.
Doctors do recommend more vaccines than they used to when we were kids. After all, there are more ways to protect children from dangerous diseases now. Parents do not need to turn to alternative vaccination schedules to keep their children safe. By following the CDC’s recommended schedule, parents can protect their children from dangerous diseases at the times they need it most and not be worried that they are putting their child at risk for autism and other conditions.
