A company spokeswoman told the Associated Press that such books were no longer available on the site, but did not provide further information, CBS News reported.
There is no cure for autism, only medications that can help improve function in some people with the disorder, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Research also shows no link between autism and vaccines.
Amazon's move comes at the same time as several major tech companies have announced steps taken to reduce the spread of misinformation about vaccines, CBS News reported.
