- There is absolutely no proven correlation between autism and vaccinations. For more information, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's dedicated autism area (www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/Concerns/Autism/Index.html). The CDC also addresses many other common vaccination concerns (www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/Concerns/Index.html).
