So... the other day I was talking with my neighbor and found out that she has not yet vaccinated her 9mo old baby and is waiting I believe until after 18 months because of a possible link with vaccines and Autism. I know very very little about Autism, but I know that doctors don't seem to know much either. I had never heard of this, but who am I to say it's wrong? I was then watching Oprah today and it was about Autism and a parent of an Autistic child brought up this same thing. The doctor on the show shunned this at first, and the parent came back and told her that this hasn't been cancelled out as a cause. I was just wondering, have any of you put off vaccines for this reason? I read that it's not a huge risk living in the states then if you lived in, say, Africa which makes complete sense. But these poor parents took their babies to the doctor knowing something was wrong and they were basically laughed at saying it was first time parent jitters... and years later the kids were diagnosed with Autism. What a scary thing.
