Nearly all of the leading health organizations including the CDC and the NIH say that there is no relationship between vaccines and autism. Yet many parents are convinced there is more to the story, and doubts about the safety of vaccines linger in their minds. How did this controversy get started — and why is it still such a concern?
Before launching into the issues surrounding vaccines and autism, it’s important to note that, with very rare exceptions, no one on either side of the vaccine issues is “anti-vaccine.” Every doctor and researcher with any real credentials acknowledges that vaccinations have saved thousands and possibly millions of lives — and even those doctors who are most vocal in their concerns about vaccines offer recommendations for what they consider to be “safe” vaccines.
