This week is Infant Immunization Week. It calls attention to a growing concern. Nationally, and here in West Texas, children are not being vaccinated due to a fear among some parents that the MMR vaccine leads to autism. MMR stands for measles, mumps, and rubella. A study released Tuesday, though, shows no link between autism and the vaccine. Lana Straub has this report.
