What's your opinion based on? Not much as far as I can tell. The fact is we just don't know because it hasn't been properly studied.
The autism link was a stupid platform to carry any kind of pro choice/anti vaccine argument.
It's not just autism, there are a host of disorders and conditions that are correlated with vaccination including -
“autoimmune diseases” (which captures “diabetes mellitus, type 1”),
“seizures” or “epilepsy” or “febrile seizures,”
“child developmental disorders, pervasive” (which captures “autistic disorders”),
“learning disorders” or “communications disorders” or “intellectual disability” or “developmental disorders,”
“attention deficit and disruptive behavior disorders,” and
“tics” or “Tourette's syndrome.”
There are studies that show vaccines are implicated in motor and phonic tic disorders but the rest haven't been adequately studied.
