Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

There is no scientific evidence that any vaccination has caused or can be linked to autism but I know a lot of people think otherwise and I respect their opinions on the matter. Also, Autism is not always diagnosed correctly although marked improvements have been made.

But if a 15 year old has no symptoms whatsoever until he is 15, then it may be something else. What symptoms is he experiencing?
