2.5.10 Have there been any comprehensive scientific studies on adverse events following immunization?

Yes. In 1986, the US Congress mandated the Institute of Medicine to
conduct a scientific review of the possible adverse events following
commonly used childhood vaccines. The Institute convened an expert
panel to implement this mandate and has published two reports on its
findings. Both reports concluded that adverse events caused by
vaccines are rare.

1. Howson, et al., Adverse Effects of Pertussis and Rubella
Vaccines.
Washington, DC: National Academy Press, 1991.
2. Stratton, et al., Adverse Events Associated with Childhood
Vaccines,
Evidence Bearing on Causality. Washington, DC: National Academy
Press, 1993.
