Contrary to studies done on this subject, many parents claim their child was normal prior to getting the MMR vaccination and now has brain damage and/or autism. It is believed that multiple live virus vaccinations given too close together can cause brain damage in certain children. By separating this vaccination into three separate vaccinations and giving them several months apart, we may be able to reduce the number of children with brain damage and/or autism. Separating the vaccination would hopefully increase the number of kids who get vaccinated, since some parents are currently refusing this vaccination due to fear of harming their child.
