Adverse Events Associated With Childhood Vaccines Other Than Pertussis and Rubella The committee found that the evidence favored acceptance of a causal relation between diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and Guillain-Barré syndrome and brachial neuritis, between measles vaccine and anaphylaxis, between oral polio vaccine and Guillain-Barré syndrome, and between unconjugated Hib vaccine and susceptibility to Hib disease. The committee found that the evidence established causality between diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and anaphylaxis, between measles vaccine and death from measles vaccine—strain viral infection, between measlesmumps-rubella vaccine and thrombocytopenia and anaphylaxis, between oral polio vaccine and poliomyelitis and death from polio vaccine—strain viral infection, and between hepatitis B vaccine and anaphylaxis.

Asthma and vaccination status - vaccinated children more likely to have asthma? This study found that vaccinated children are up to 14 times more likely to suffer from asthma but the study authors say the reason was that those who were not vaccinated were also seeing their doctor less frequently and therefore less likely to be diagnosed. They believe just as many unvaccinated children may have asthma but have not been diagnosed as such. Am J Public Health. 2004 June; 94(6): 985–989

Cervical cancer accounts for 1% of cancer deaths in UK women Cervical cancer is the 17th most common cause of cancer death among women in the UK (2012), accounting for 1% of all female deaths from cancer.
Cervical cancer constitutes 2% of cancers diagnosed in UK women Around 3,100 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the UK each year. Overall, about 2 out of every 100 cancers diagnosed in women (2%) are cervical cancers. But it is the most common cancer in women under 35 years old.
Cervical cancer deaths dropped over 70% in last 40 years Mortality from cervical cancer has been declining for decades. [will HPV vaccines in future be credited with the improvement?]

Cochrane review on influenza vaccinations in healthy adults Influenza vaccines have a very modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost in the general population, including pregnant women. No evidence of association between influenza vaccination and serious adverse events was found in the comparative studies considered in the review.

Health Protection Agency: narcolepsy risk from pandemic A/H1N1 2009 flu vaccine (Pandemrix) The increased risk of narcolepsy after vaccination with ASO3 adjuvanted pandemic A/H1N1 2009 vaccine indicates a causal association, consistent with findings from Finland. Because of variable delay in diagnosis, however, the risk might be overestimated by more rapid referral of vaccinated children. BMJ 2013;346:f794

Hib cases among fully vaccinated children In 2002, 85% of Hib cases were in fully vaccinated children in England and Wales
Hib cases are underreported in the age group targeted for vaccination Study compared active and passive surveillance data following the introduction of Hib vaccinations in the UK.
Hib cases reduced in both the vaccinated and unvaccinated after vaccination campaign After Hib vaccine was introduced marked reductions were observed in the number of cases of Hib disease in children under five years of age. Disease rates also fell in older children and adults who had not been immunised because the number of children carrying Hib bacteria, and therefore able to infect other people, fell.

Limit durability of pertussis vaccine immunity USA 2012 Despite widespread childhood vaccination against Bordetella pertussis, disease remains prevalent. It has been suggested that acellular vaccine may be less effective than previously believed.
Little evidence of a herd effect from influenca (flu) vaccinations In summary, herd effects are assumed with influenza vaccine programmes, but there are few studies that quantify the herd effect of vaccination. We found low-level evidence supporting a herd effect of vaccination on influenza virus infection in contacts of vaccinated persons. Further rigorous studies are needed in order to better understand under which circumstances vaccination may prevent influenza and its complications in contacts.
