NPR's Jon Hamilton reports on a new study showing no link between a commonly used childhood vaccine and autism. The 14-year-long study in California kindergartens failed to find an association between a rise in reported autism cases in the state and the MMR vaccine. The research appears in Wednesday's issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
