Anti-vaccers take note.
Nearly 100,000 kids enrolled in a large US health plan were followed from birth to at least 5 years of age.
Overall, 1% of the children were diagnosed with ASD* during follow-up.
Children who received the MMR^ vaccine were no more likely to be diagnosed with ASD than unvaccinated children — a finding that held true even among children whose older siblings had autism (which makes them higher risk).
*ASD = Autism Spectrum Disorder
^MMR = Measles Mumps Rubella
