A new study shows MMR vaccines are not linked to austim (WTVD)

There's no harmful link between the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine and autism, according to a new study.

The study was published in the Journal of American Medical Association. It is the latest piece of research to debunk the myth associating the MMR vaccine with autism.

The study included approximately 95,000 children. Researchers paid particular attention to children who had older siblings with autism.

Despite a substantial body of research that finds no link between autism and the MMR vaccine, many parents believe the association exists.
