Despite the widespread perception by parents of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) that vaccine administration causes autism, a large body of published literature now exists that shows no significant association for the great majority of children. However, vaccine injuries do occur, though rarely, and not all questions have been answered by current literature.
