Milwaukee’s newly picked top health official told a radio audience that “the science is still out” on whether there’s a link between some vaccines and autism.
“Unfortunately, she couldn’t be more incorrect,” said James H. Conway, a pediatrics professor at University of Wisconsin-School of Medicine and Public Health. “The science is clear and has been reviewed over and over not just by the CDC, but by NIH and numerous studies. The information is clear that the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine does not cause autism.”
