Vaccine and Autism Link?

Nassau County officials are looking into a potential link between a combination of children vaccines given to young children which may cause autism.

John Gilmore of Autism United says new research has indicated the link.

A federal court ruled in favor of a 9-year-old girl who began exhibiting autism symptoms immediately after receiving immunizations.

Data on the number of children affected has varied in different studies, however most estimates say there are approximately 560,000 children with autism in the U.S. In New York State, there has been a 700% increase since 1992.
