(CBS News)- A new study shows that ontime immunizations do not harm a child's brain development.

Many parent's worry that too many shots at once can be harmful to the development of the brain, therefore they space out their children's immunizations.

A study looked at when more than 1000 children received vaccines, then tested the children several years later.  The study shows that the children who received timely shots scored higher on tests in language, memory and intellect.
