    MMR Vaccine and Austism Link Take's Final Blow
    Emma_WebMD_Staff posted:
    You have all read or heard about the suspicions that the MMR vaccine was causing Autism. There has been a study that is debunking that.

    Read our blog about the Infamous Study on MMR Vaccine and Autism .

    Does this make you feel better about letting your LO have their MMR vaccine? Or do you still have some reservations?
    5ylver responded:
    I'm not sure if I feel better or worse about it, as the blog did not explain exactly why it's not a link, it only mentioned people saying Andrew Wakefield was wrong, but no proof. There was also no proof saying he's right. I'm not exactly for or against it, just open-minded to the possibilities so I wish there were more to the blog stating why they think there is or is not a link between MMR and vaccines

    Hi 5ylver,

    WebMD has a more indepth story publishing soon, and we'll link it up for this group. We've also got interviews coming with some of the folks involved.

    Take care,
