Measles Vaccine Doesn't Cause Autism, Massive Study Finds

March 5, 2019

As the U.S. grapples with its worst measles outbreak in years, a new study of half a million Danish children finds that there's "no association whatsoever" between the measles vaccine and the development of autism. The study also showed that the vaccine was 97 percent effective in combating measles, mumps and rubella. As The Washington Post notes, the belief that the measles vaccine causes autism has long been a belief of the anti-vaccination movement.
