“We analysed the data and it shows there is no link,” Associate Professor Guy Eslick of the Sydney Medical School told AAP.

Despite many previous studies disproving such an association, Eslick was inspired to pull together all the evidence after watching two TV documentaries that mentioned a link between autism-spectrum disorder and vaccines.

He also found there was no link between autism and vaccine ingredients, including mercury and thimerosal

Published in Vaccine, the review clears the vaccines for diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough, as well as the measles, mumps and rubella MMR immunisation.
