Safety

“Myelin sheaths cover many nerve fibers in the central and peripheral nervous system; they accelerate axonal transmission of neural impulses. Disorders that affect myelin interrupt nerve transmission; symptoms may reflect deficits in any part of the nervous system.” – Read more about demyelination following vaccination in the Merck Manual.

Are vaccines perfectly safe? Explore the literature:

1. “Overall, 14.2% of all reports received in VAERS during 1991–2001 described serious adverse events (10) (Table 9). During 1991–2001, reports of deaths ranged from 1.4%–2.3%, and reports of life-threatening illness ranged from 1.4%–2.8% of all adverse event reports. During the previous 3 years when distribution of vaccines reached the highest level, the annual percentage of reports of death was stable, approximately 1.5% of all adverse event reports. The reports of life-threatening illness were also stable throughout the years except for a peak of 2.8% in 1999, which reflected RRV-TV and intussusception incident that occurred in that year.” – CDC MMWR:  Surveillance for Safety After Immunization: Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — United States, 1991–2001

2. “A total of 2090 reports (7% were serious; 55% listed Tdap alone) involving Tdap vaccines were submitted to VAERS May 2005-June 2007… Rarely reported AEs included myopericarditis, demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, syncope, encephalopathy/encephalitis, seizure, Bell’s palsy, anaphylaxis, and thrombocytopenia.” – U.S. Postlicensure safety surveillance for adolescent and adult tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis vaccines: 2005-2007.

 

 Widely accepted side effects of vaccines containing pertussis antigens or tetanus toxoids include:
  • Anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock
  • Brachial neuritis
  • Encephalopathy (or encephalitis)

(see http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/vaccinetable.html#2)

Reported but as yet unstudied side effects where there is “Inadequate Data to Confirm or Deny a Causal Relationship include (Inadequate data to confirm or deny):

  • Infantile spasms
  • Seizures
  • Ataxia
  • Autism
  • Acute disseminated encephalomyeltits
  • Transverse myelitis
  • Optical Neuritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS)
  • Chronic Inflammatory Disseminated Polyneuropathy
  • Opsoclonus Myclonus Syndrome
  • Bells Palsy
  • Chronic Uticaria
  • Arthropathy
  • Diabetes (rejected)
  • Myocarditis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
  • Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)
