Analysis of childhood vaccines confirms they are safe
The latest analysis of childhood vaccines confirms they're generally safe.
That's according to a new study published in the Medical Journal Pediatrics.
The report should be reassuring to parents, the researchers say.
For example, there still is no evidence the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine causes autism.
Nor is there any proof vaccines cause childhood leukemia.
The assessment mirrors and updates a 2011 report on vaccine safety by the U.S. Institute of Medicine.
That report found vaccines can cause certain side effects but serious ones are very rare.
