In today's health matters, scientists who've reviewed more than a thousand studies say vaccines don't cause autism or type one diabetes .And rarely do they have serious side effects.

The researchers are from the institute of medicine, part of the national academy of sciences, a private, non-profit organization which advises the federal government.

Some parents suspect vaccines caused autism in their children, but the scientists say there's no evidence of that.

The same for diabetes. The scientists looked at eight common vaccines, including those for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella, Chicken Pox and Flu.

The government commissioned the study to help guide the vaccine injury compensation program.

The program provides a pool of money to take care of children who experience serious side effects from vaccines.
