No link found between measles vaccine and autism, study finds

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK / STANFORD, CALIFORNIA — A study in the Annals of Internal Medicine has confirmed that getting a Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccination won't cause a child to develop autism.

Researchers involved in the study examined more than a half a million Danish children born between 1999 and 2010 to see if there was a link between getting vaccinated and receiving an autism diagnosis.

The study found that the vaccine isn't linked to an increased risk of autism.

The researchers explained that a vaccination wasn't likely to cause autism, adding that it also is not responsible for autism cases that appear after vaccination takes place.

The news comes in wake of several measles outbreaks in the U.S. Many parents there refuse to have their children vaccinated against the disease because they believe vaccinations cause autism.

There are six measles outbreaks across the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Symptoms include high fever, red eyes, and a rash that begins on the face.

The CDC says the virus is contagious as it stays in the airspace when an infected person has coughed or sneezed.

90 percent of those not immune to the virus will likely become infected.

The CDC also recommends getting the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine to prevent any new outbreaks.
