Autism Speaks, one of the leading autism advocacy groups states the following:

"Over the last two decades, extensive research has asked whether there is any link between childhood vaccinations and autism.  The results of this research are clear: Vaccines do not cause autism.  We urge that all children be fully vaccinated."
No. Plain and simple; no.

When I was a child in the 50's, there were precious few vaccines, yet I have been diagnosed with Aspergers.

Someone did an improperly controlled study, and now there are fools that are spreading this idea, and not wanting to see that it is genetic. I guess they have lofty ideas as to their identities, and do not want to see themselves as flawed in some way.
