Autism risk not associated with vaccinations

Researchers in Olmsted County have concluded from their study that increased awareness and better diagnosis of autism is responsible to the increased rate observed. The increase does not correspond to the introduction of the MMR vaccine or the preservative thimerosal in vaccines. Autism rates increased from 5.5 per 100,000 children (1980-83) to 44.9 per 100,000 children (1995-97).
