On Thursday afternoon, the Tennessee Department of Health issued a statement on immunizations. The statement read as follows:

"Vaccines do not cause autism. Vaccines save lives."

The Tennessee Department of Health reported that they welcome discussion with Tennessee clinicians and scientists who would like to examine the evidence on this topic.

A past press release from the Department of Health stated, "Prior to widespread immunization in the United States, infectious diseases killed or disabled thousands of children each year. Those same germs exist today, but babies are now protected by vaccines. We do not see these diseases as often, however, outbreaks do still occur among young children because some babies are not immunized or get sick before they are immunized."

The state also reports that Flu Vaccines save lives each year in Tennessee.
