Autism Speaks, a leading advocacy organization for autism, has updated its stance on vaccines, reports The Washington Post.

Now, with a growing measles outbreak that has over 120 confirmed cases across 17 states, making sure kids (and adults) are vaccinated according to the updated CDC vaccine schedule is important. And Autism Speaks is advocating that vaccines be given to your child.
