Institute of Medicine, Immunization Safety Review Committee. 2004. Immunization safety review: Vaccines and autism. Washington, DC: National Academies Press, 199 pp.

Annotation: This eighth and final report of the Immunization Safety Review Committee examines the hypothesis and research that vaccines, specifically the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and thimerosal-containing vaccines, are causally associated with autism. Finding no evidence of causality, the report recommends a public health response that fully supports an array of vaccine safety activities and recommends that available funding for autism research be channeled to the most promising areas. The report makes additional recommendations regarding surveillance and epidemiological research, clinical studies, and communication related to these vaccine safety concerns.
