Vaccination Update: Measles not linked to autism.... again

MEASLES: New large (650,000 patients) measles study out this week in the Annals of Internal Medicine as outbreaks to unvaccinated travelers and contacts continues in the US.

Here's the link to the new study demonstrating no association between MMR vaccine and autism. The conclusions are not new. Rather, it provides even stronger evidence that we hope will help the anti-vaccination crowd stop and think.

Also, note from the CDC website, note that the US has already had 206 measles cases (in 2 months) in 2019. (The graph below is missing the last week of February) https://www.cdc.gov/measles/cases-outbreaks.html

Conclusion: we need to avoid diseases that cause harm. Measles is a serious illness and can be avoided with proper preventative vaccines.
