We investigated whether a protective association exists between receipt of rotavirus vaccine and being hospitalized or visiting the emergency department for seizures in the year after vaccination. Methods. We retrospectively analyzed a cohort of children born after 28 February 2006 (when rotavirus vaccine was...

Frequency of medically attended adverse events following tetanus and diphtheria toxoid vaccine in adolescents and young adults: a Vaccine Safety Datalink study

Background Local reactions are the most commonly reported adverse events following tetanus and diphtheria toxoid (Td) vaccine and the risk of local reactions may increase with number of prior Td vaccinations. Methods To estimate the risk of medically attended local reactions following Td vaccination in adolescents and young adults we conducted a six-year retrospective cohort...

Adequacy of Surveillance to Detect Endemic Rubella Transmission in the United States

Background.Reported rubella cases in the United States are at the lowest numbers since the introduction of vaccine, suggesting that endemic transmission may have been interrupted. It is necessary to validate that the observed absence of rubella is due to the disappearance of disease rather than a failure of rubella surveillance. Methods.Adequate rubella surveillance to detect...

Safety Profile of Smallpox Vaccine: Insights from the Laboratory Worker Smallpox Vaccination Program

Background. The frequency of mild-to-moderate adverse events following smallpox vaccination was not well documented or reported during the pre-eradication era. This report describes the frequency of such symptoms among 936 adult smallpox vaccinees with and without a history of prior smallpox vaccination. Methods. Diary cards were distributed to 1006 laboratory workers and members...
