In the most unsurprising news of the morning, kids with autism are less likely to get the remainder of their vaccinations, according to a new study. The study also found that the siblings of kids with autism are less likely to get any vaccines at all.
The mainstream media is seemingly “shocked” by the findings since “vaccines do not cause autism.”
“They’re not getting the rest of their vaccinations, so that was a big surprise,” Zerbo said about the results, published Monday in the JAMA Pediatrics journal.
With rising autism diagnosis on the rise, one might surmise that the diagnoses themselves could be the critical turning point regarding vaccine trends. If this is the case, manipulation of data certainly has an entirely new epicenter.
The study surveyed parents who have at least one child on the autism spectrum. The biggest downtrend in terms of specific vaccines was MMR.
“This study is showing that the children with autism and their younger siblings might be at higher risk of the vaccine-preventable diseases,” Zerbo said.
3,729 children with an autism spectrum diagnosis were surveyed and 592,907 children without one were also surveyed.
