Ask Dr. Rupp: Questions about vaccines and immunizations

Galveston County Daily News, April 16, 2013

UTMB’s Dr. Richard Rupp responds to the question, “I’ve heard that vaccines cause autism. Is that true?” He says that autism is a concern for any parent, but it is not caused by vaccines. “Some parents link their child’s autism to vaccines because the child’s vaccination schedule is usually around the same time when parents and doctors begin to notice developmental signs and neurological symptoms that lead to the diagnosis of an autism.”
