Vaccines are safe for kids-- that's the conclusion of an analysis of 67 research studies on childhood vaccines.
The review released just this morning by researchers at the Rand Corporation, comes as many vaccine preventable diseases like measles are making a come back because parents aren't getting their kids vaccinated.
Researchers found the measles, mumps, rubella, or the MMR vaccine is *not linked to autism* despite the myth.
They also found strong evidence this vaccine, and the Tetanus and Hepatitis B vaccine are not associated with childhood leukemia.
Researchers say there is a lot of mis-information on the internet about vaccines-- they say with the decline of print journalism, anyone can put anything online.
They say like all drugs,, vaccines can have side effects but those reports were extremely *rare*.
